Rerun No. 16 | Happiest of Holidays with Vanessa

Hi sweet Winnie & Walter friends! Vanessa here with a Christmas card. I like to keep my Christmas cards flat to make it easier to mail them. This is one design that would be easy to mass produce.

I started with a panel of watercolor paper that I had trimmed slightly smaller than my gold card base. I masked off the edges with washi tape and applied various green Distress Inks with an ink blending tool. Then I stamped the leaves from Merry & Bright with Evelin T Designs and the small circles from Happiest of Holidays with Evelin T Designs onto the inked area. I applied gold ink droplets and let everything dry. After I had removed the tape, I stamped the sentiment from Happiest of Holidays and heat-embossed it with gold embossing powder. Now I adhered the panel to the card and finished it off with gold sequins.

I need to hurry up with my Christmas card production! How about you, are you ready? 

Thanks for stopping by today!
