This is my entry for The Stamping Bazaar's First Christmas Challenge for Operation Write Home. I used the emboss-resist technique for the image, I used Ranger's Broken China to color in the background. I also embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. The card base is Poppy Red from Paper Trey Ink and it measures 5.5 in x 4.25 in.

I have had the hardest time trying to figure out what to make for my first project for Cuttlebugspot... One, because my very young Aunt beat her battle with breast cancer about a year ago. Second, I have had so many things go through my mind when I saw this week's theme it was difficult to condense all of them into one A2 card. As a matter of fact, I have made 5 cards using every technique I know. Until I found the image that I used on my card. Today's winner at the CuttlebugSpot will win a gift card from Custom Crops!
I know that we were only supposed to to make one project for the challenge but I didn't want to waste the second image I accidentally printed out. The sentiment and the image are digitally printed.
Both cards are standard size (5.5 in by 4.25 in). Both kraft and dark chocolate cardstocks (I used for card base) are from Paper Trey Ink. I used Bird Call Cuttlebug Folder to emboss the green paper I used to mat the image on the first card. I embossed it sideways so only the grass blades would show, to give it some dimension. Then I used some dimensional adhesive to mount the image on to the card.
I used Stylized Flowers Cuttlebug Folder and embossed the whole front of the second card with it. I used some pink Core'dinations cardstock to frame the window and used my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper to round the corners on both cards. I also used my white gel pen to make faux stitching lines.
