Holiday Card Series| Day 1| KWCardDesign

My my...its been a while since I last posted anything to my blog - my apologies!  Life just happens, ya know! You should be seeing more frequency over here - I am starting my Holiday Card Series for 2015!!

Today's card is using the Simon Says Stamp/Lawn Fawn exclusive stamp set Merry Christmouse.  Unfortunately, this set is sold out - it was only available during Simon Says Stamp Stamptember event - but I couldn't resist using this set for my first installment!!

I feel I kept it simple with the design - but I feel it turned out really cute too!!  I did a little of everything, stamping, coloring and die cutting.  I started out stamping the cute image of the mouse in the stocking onto a piece of white PTI Stampers Select White CS, and used MFT Hybrid Black Licorice ink.  I did some simply Copic coloring of my image.  All of the markers, and other supplies that I used for this card I listed/linked below the video tutorial.

Once I was happy with the coloring - I did some die cutting - I used the Small Stitched Rectangles Dies from LF as well as a Stitched  Circle die from SSS and I die cut from a piece of New Leaf CS from Papertrey ink.  I also die cut a scalloped rectangle from LF and die cut a piece of Schoolhouse Red CS from SSS.  For my green card stock piece, I wanted to add a bit of interest, so I used the cheese present image, and stamped it using Green Hills ink from Hero Arts and created a random pattern all over. Then I stamped my sentiment from the same stamp set using the same black ink as before.  I then placed foam adhesive on the back of my panel, and adhered it to my red scalloped piece.  I then adhered my circle piece, and for the final touch I added some clear wink of stella to add some shimmer.

Super cute to mass produce and it really wouldn't take long to crank out a few of these!!

Thanks for stopping by for Day 1!  Hope you come back for Day 2!!  See you then!
