Holiday Card Series - Merry Christmas

Hello everyone,

I have another card for my Holiday Card series.  I used some of the images I coloured during Kathy Racoosin's colouring challenge.  

As soon as I coloured these up, I knew exactly the card I was going to make with them.  And so I did!

I stamped and coloured in the images with my copics and then I ran them through my die cutting machine and then added them to the panel with foam tape. I then cut out a square panel using white card stock from Recollections using the SSS stitched square dies. 

As I put the stencil down onto the paper with from Winnie & Walter, I added it diagonally and then ink blended some Fog ink from Simon Says Stamp.  I then popped it up onto a square card base with fun foam. I am liking that stuff more and more for creating dimension on my cards. Especially since I'm one of those who gets so involved with the card I end up forgetting to stamp the sentiment until the card is put together.  This way even if I forget, there is enough support under the panel that I can still add it to the card without destroying the whole card.  

After that was all done, I die cut the word merry three times out of black card stock from Lawn Fawn with a SSS word. It actually comes all together as Merry Christmas and I just cut off the Christmas part and stamped it instead. Unfortunately it has been so long since I did this card I can't remember which set the Christmas came from.  But there are many stamps set that would work.  

To finish off the card I used a white Signo gel pen and added the little dots and dashes to the flower.  

Thanks for stopping  by, see you again soon!
