On the Horizon

 Hello friends! I have had a lot going on this week. I have my regular monthly stamp group as well as getting ready for our big event at the Lakehouse this Sunday. I'm so excited about this event again and so thankful we are able to have it. It is going to be so much fun! 

Today's card was based on one that I made last year using some Christmas paper. It is sort of like a panorama type card so this DSP is perfect for it.

I used the New Horizons DSP for today's card. It is 6 X 6 inches so I cut it down to 5 1/4 X 6 inches. I stamped the trees image from the On the Horizon stamp twice using Evening Evergreen ink. I then stamped the birds image twice using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Then I cut the DSP into three strips. The trick is keeping them in the correct order when you assemble the card! 

I matted the strips of DSP onto Evening Evergreen cardstock. I then attached these pieces to a Basic White Thick card base that was folded into a Z fold.

I stamped my sentiment from the same set using Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a strip of Basic White cardstock. I used the Banners Pick a Punch to trim the two ends of the strip. I matted this piece on a piece of Evening Evergreen cardstock that I cut using the punch as well. I attached my sentiment piece onto the front panel of the card.

The card looks good when it is closed but when you open it up completely, you see the entire panorama picture of the scene. 

This entire pack of DSP has beautiful scenes similar to this one. They are so beautiful and make such gorgeous cards with very little stamping. I didn't even use dimensionals or ribbon which is very rare for me!

Stay well and keep creating!
