I am in Christmas mode now that my Thanksgiving cards are finished. I even put up some of my outside Christmas lights since we had unseasonally warm temps today (70 degrees).
Today's card features the technique shown in PTI's MIM video: Reverse Applique. I am not a fan of this technique, but established this blog mainly for the purpose of participating in PTI's MIM & Blog Hop. So I decided to play along anyway. The layout of this card is simple and was quick to make. I practiced on a scrap of cardstock to decide if I wanted to use a faux stitch or a real one around the Christmas tree. Because of the zigzagging of the die, I went with a faux stitch. I used my paper piercer to punch holes around the perimeter of the tree and connected each hole with a white gel pen.
I made this card last night. The more I see it, the more I am starting to like it. I still don't know if I will use this technique again. Thanks for looking. What do you think about this technique.
