Joy to the World

Hi everyone!  I have another Christmas card to share with you all using some of the goodies from the All the Trimmings Release.  This card uses the Nested Labels Dies, the gorgeous Flourishes Background Stamp, the Seasonal Sentiments & Borders stamp set.

I started my card by smooshing the Mardi Gras ink pad onto my craft sheet, spritzed with water and then smooshed my water color card stock into it. I dried it with my heat tool, then smooshed again into the color and dried again until I was happy with the colors and textures.  Love this fun technique because you get a different look every single time!

I die cut the piece using one of the Nested Labels Dies and then did some stamping and silver heat embossing using one of the borders.

I stamped and heat embossed the Flourishes Background stamp onto my card base using Wanderlust embossing powder.  I love the sparkle this adds to the card base.  I finished off my card with some black and white twine.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
