2015 Christmas Card #4

Oooops, another card with lots of red... This time for a Christmas card.
Over at 52CCT they have a challenge of inlaid die cuts, a technique I had never tried before, so I thought it was time. And Rocky's card over at CASE-ing Christmas gave the idea of the design. I was inspired by her tall and skinny design, mine is 3,5x6 inches. She used 3 stamped snowflakes, I chose die cut hearts.
When I had layered my white base onto red mirri card and had inserted the glitter paper die cuts heart I thought it looked a bit plain, so I ran it through a Tim Holtz embossing folder. I used my white gelato pen on the red embossed areas. I also die cut a Christmas sentiment with red mirri card, but I mounted in on top of the panel.

Maureen of "Scraps of Life by Scrappymo" has taken over the Rudolph Days challenge as of 2015, why not head over and have a look.

This card is for these challenges:
1) 52 Christmas Card Throwdown - Inlaid Dies
2) CASE-ing Christmas - CASE #4
3) Rudolph Days Challenge - January
4) Cut it Up - #63 Embossing
