I felt I needed to use a few actual card supplies before I left this challenge. Inkspirational Challenge #74 is getting a third course this time!! I guess that would be dessert!
Though the snowy background does add light, I wish it were a bit sunny today. These SSS stitched dies cut both the inner panel and stitch inside and out. I back this with vellum to hold it in place. What I achieve by doing this is a postal friendly card, and when held to the light, one can see through the stitch lines... an unplanned bonus, believe me. Must mention the Verve dies... perfection in ombre colors.
