Welcome back to another More July Release with Papertrey Ink! Every month, even way before I joined the design team, I have always admired how beautiful PTI products were. They truly knock out some of the most gorgeous dies and stamps I’ve ever seen, and today I get to share with you a project I made with this month’s outstanding cover plate die called Mountain Majesty.
I actually used the Mountain Majesty stamp set in yesterday’s post for On the Wagon, so you may be somewhat familiar with it already. This is the cover plate version and the plate is so delicate, and has this wonderful open area to stamp a large sentiment. I started by painting the blue watercolor wash onto watercolor paper, then die cutting the plate. I wanted to create a night sky, and soon after I did that I had a flurry of Christmas card ideas! So, this plate is definitely coming back into my projects later in the year.
On another piece of watercolor paper, I did the same thing, but with primarily purple for the mountains. This layer was going to be underneath, so I intentionally added some darker areas as well to add more depth to the mountains.
I heat embossed the Year of Psalms: July onto the open area in white as it fits perfectly. I assembled the two layers together onto an A2 base card. It’s a pretty simple card, and yet so striking at the same time!
