Holiday Card Series 2016 | Card #6 | KWCardDesign

Hi and welcome to another card in my HCS for 2016!  Today, I wanted to create a more simple card focusing around the sentiment, but amping  up the card with embellishments and sparkle!

I started with a piece of distress water color card stock, and I had this previously die cut and wanted to use this panel since it was available in my stash.  So I prepped my panel with my power tool and put my panel in my MISTI stamping tool.  I am stamping onto textured water color paper, so this ensures that I get a great stamped impression.  I inked up my Merry Christmas stamp from Simon Says Stamp with versa mark ink, and coated my sentiment with the Hero Arts white embossing powder, and I used my heat tool to set.

Then, I wanted to give my sentiment some color with the Candied Apple Distress ink, so I brushed plain water all over my panel, and onto my plastic palette from Art Impressions, I smooshed some of the ink on the palette, and took my paint brush, and brushed on the color to create a water colored panel.

I wanted some extra depth to my red, so I added some Barn Door Distress ink as well, I did heat set in between layers.  Then, once I was happy with the color, I sprayed some shimmer mist to give some slight shimmer my panel and I set aside.

I then die cut a piece of Silver Sparkle card stock from MFT, using a rectangle die from the Hero Arts Infinity Dies, and also a piece of New Leaf Card stock from PTI using a stitched frame die from Right At Home.

I added some shimmery red ribbon in my stash to the bottom of the panel and added the panel backed with the silver sparkle card stock and added some foam tape to that.  and adhered it to my green die cut panel.  Then, I added all of that to my white card base, also from PTI. To finish, I added a felt holly leaf embellishment to tie in the green of the card stock.
