Merry Christmas And a Happy New Year - Karen McKibbin

Hi there!
Supplies Used:  Paper Piece Rectangle Metal Cutting Die 21441, Christmas Stocking Metal Die Set 19508, Crisp Christmas A5 12pc Sentiment Sheets 19772, Stampendous Jewelled Gold Embossing Powder, Cosmic Shimmer Ultra Sparkle Paste in Frosty Sparkle, Nuvo Shimmer Pen, Copic Markers
Hello again everyone, I'm bringing you a little Christmas today!  I die cut the Paper Piece Rectangle die from white cardstock and carefully placed a piece of Glad Press 'N Seal on the backs of the diecut pieces to hold them in place while I coloured them.  I used Copic markers, all from the reds series, to colour them in.  Then I randomly applied the Ultra Sparkle Paste or Shimmer pen to a few of the sections and let them dry. 
I saved the white outline frame piece that was diecut with all the inset pieces, and positioned that on the card front with removable tape, making sure it was centered. Then I inset and glued all the coloured pieces into the frame, which was quite simple since the Press 'N Seal had held them all in place. Once they were in place, I removed the outline piece that had been temporarily positioned.  You could of course, glue it in place too, but I wanted the no frame look for this card.
I used an oval shape to trace around the sentiment and then fussy cut it out.  I went around the edges with a VersaMark ink pad, just lightly leaving a little ink.  I sprinkled on the Jewelled Gold embossing powder and heat set it.  I used a VersaMark pen to put some ink on the stocking die cut and sprinkled on the same embossing powder, which I also heat set. I used a gold brad to attach the stocking to the sentiment. I cut two more layers of cardstock to place behind the sentiment to add some dimension.  Then I glued it in place on the card.  Finally, I added a few gold pearls to the stocking.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're having a happy, creative day!
