'Tis the Season!


I have another Christmas card to share today!  This time I am using the sketch at Always Playing With Paper and the colors from this months MFT Color Palette Challenge.
PrintI started with MFT Card Stock Sampler pack.  I am using smooth white, sour apple, red hot, berrylicious, and grout gray card stocks.  

 I used Vertical Stitched Strips to die cut the three different colored panels.  I placed all three panels on a sheet of paper and stamped with the Fine Chevron background using white pigment ink.   I white embossed each panel.  Then, I used the versa mark to sponge over each panel to create some rich depth and dimension with the contrasting white. I glued all three panels to a grout gray base.   

Next, I die cut smooth white card stock with MFT Pierced Oval Stax.   I softly sponged inside the die with MFT Premium Berrylicious Ink.   I stamped the snowman and Christmas tree from  Christmas Cuteness stamp set with MFT Black Licorice Hybrid ink.   I colored both images with Copics.     I used the sentiment from MFT Starry Christmas stamp set using MFT Premium Red Hot ink.  I added some foam tape to pop it up in the center of the card.  I finished my card with a few iridescent sequins.  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
