Sparkly Christmas

I got this adorable Scribbly Christmas set from Tim Holtz last year and never got around to actually using it. I decided it was time I needed to rectify that situation, so I pulled it out to use on today’s card.

Since this adorable tree is kind of busy on its own, I decided to keep the rest of the card simple to let it shine. I started by using my MISTI to stamp the tree and one of the sentiments from the stamp set on a piece of white card stock using Jet Black ink from Lawn Fawn. I then over-stamped the tree using VersaMark ink and heat embossed it using Iridescent Ice embossing powder from Stampin’ Up!® Unfortunately, the powder has been discontinued, but I’ll link to something similar in the product list.

After the embossing cooled a bit, I used one of my stitched rectangles dies from Simon Says Stamp to die cut the panel. I matted the die cut layer with a piece of Real Red card stock cut 1/8″ larger on each side.

To assemble the card, I created a top-folding card base from white card stock. I cut a full layer of green ticking paper from the Quilted Christmas 6×6″ DSP to cover the front of the card. I then used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the matted focal panel and that completed the card.

This card would work really well for a masculine card. If you wanted, you could even omit the sparkle embossing powder and just use the black ink to keep it even more masculine.

Until next time …
