Holiday Card Series 2016 | Card #4 | KWCardDesign

Hi and welcome to Card #4 in my HCS for 2016!  Today, I am featuring some dies from Ellen Hutson and My Favorite Things.

I started out by prepping a piece of water color card stock with my anti static powder tool.  Then, I inked up my background stamp from Hero Arts called Handdrawn Snowflakes, and embossed it with my favorite white embossing powder.  I then took my stitched frame die from Right At Home and it gives my panel and nice stitched detail all around.

I took my Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, and I inked all over majority of my panel and kept the edges white.  Since we embossed the background, it resisted the ink, and the white snowflakes appear nice and white in the background.

For my die cuts, I used a beautiful die from Ellen Hutson from the Essentials by Ellen line called Leaping Deer.  I am in love with this die!!  I had previously embossed the same background and embossed it with silver and it left the die cut with a beautiful extra detail.  I wanted my deer to have dimension, so I die cut the deer four more times out of the same Pure Poppy card stock.

I adhered them together with my Multi Matte Medium adhesive, and it created a nice thick die cut embellishment.

For my sentiment, I die cut from some Smoke card stock from SSS using this Merry Christmas die from MFT.  It is a nice scripty font!  I also die cut this several times to give it dimension.  I adhered all of my elements to my panel, and then I adhered that to my card base made from Fog card stock, also from SSS.

For a final touch , I added some shimmer using ( what else) my Wink of Stella shimmer pen. I love this classy look of how this card turned out!  All the supplies I used are listed/linked below!  

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll return soon for card #5!
