Camouflage Die Cutting


I've always wanted to try--and maybe I did, once, unsuccessfully--the "camouflage" technique
shared by the uber talented Laurafadora over at Papertrey Ink for their
Make It Monday series. Have you seen her video? I wanted to give it another shot.

Here's my card.


I tried to do ombré inking, but the two red inks were pretty similar. And since I didn't have
any suitable word sentiment dies, I used Papertrey Ink's alphabet dies
for the camouflaged sentiment.

I had to chuckle after I took the photo. Doesn't my card remind you of Santa?
The white = his beard, red = his suit, black = his belt. A deconstructed Santa.

Thanks for stopping by today!
