There's a tutorial and "boot camp" challenge at the Stars and Stamps blog today that's all about using white space as a design element for your cards. I just love the tree pattern in this embossed panel and thought it could stand alone, so I worked around it instead of "on it." (Sorry, I embossed this panel at a friend's house and don't know who makes it.) I added a panel of olive card stock and matching striped ribbon, along with a red banner. I punched 3 mini trees with a SU! punch, and embossed the SU! sentiment in gold to bring it all together. What I like most about this card is that it's flat and won't require extra postage!
Here's a close up of the sentiment panel...
Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a great week ahead!
ETA: the embossing folder is by Sizzix and it's from the Evergreen & Snow Flowers set.
