Holiday Card: Modern Farmhouse Vibe

The Wood Cookie layering die set features two image sets, each with three layers. The main image is a wood slice, which gives a rustic yet modern vibe to any card or layout. To create a rustic holiday card using this die set, start by cutting the three layers of the wood slice from white cardstock.

For the large solid background image, use delectable delights mini ink cube set to color this layer. With a large ink blending tool, apply a very light layer of vanilla cream and then apply an even lighter layer of hazelnut to the center of the background layer. For the final tree bark layer, use milk chocolate ink to roughly apply the ink to the inner ring of the die cut. With the coordinating artist marker, define a solid line on the inner portion of the bark layer. Assembling this motif is so simple, all the outlines of the layers align perfectly, so glue them together for this birch wood slice.

Next, pair this layered die set with the Poinsettia and Berries stamp and die set. This set is perfect for creating holiday cards with a floral touch. Stamp the poinsettia with red sunset fresh dye inks and incorporate the outline of the berry branch to balance the somewhat shapeless details. Use the coordinating die to cut both of these images, then stamp your sentiment from Poinsettia and Berries to make a sentiment strip.

To finish the card, use Spicy Yogurt cardstock as your background and mount the poinsettia image with foam tape. Cut apart the berry branch to tuck and frame the poinsettia bracts and add the sentiment strip. Embellish the card with simple jet black ink spray splatters to help trail the eyes around the floral arrangement branch and sentiment.
