Holiday Cheer

Good morning everyone! I hope you are all having a great Monday. It's Cassie here and I've made a cute and simple holiday card to share with you! Today I've used the Banner Sentiments 2 stamp set, Coffee Craze  stamp set, and a small die from the Packaged Pretty die set.

I started by stamping two of the cups with whipped cream on top onto some Tim Holtz water color paper. I had die cut the paper with a stitched rectangle die. Because I wanted one in front of the other I masked the red cup so that it would look as if the green cup was behind it when I stamped it. I colored both cups in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I made sure they were completely dry and stamped the two sentiments, both of which were from the Banner Sentiment 2 set, in VersaMark ink and heat embossed them with white embossing powder.
Then I took the dot from the Packaged Pretty die set and die cut a bunch of dots from the panel of my card. This was a little time consuming, and it is difficult to see in the videos, but it looks so fun in real life, and I love the snowy look it gives! I also die cut the bow from the set and colored it with the same green as the cup. I added some little dots to it to give it a little interest.
I attached another piece of water color cardstock to the back of the card panel and put it so the textured side of the paper was up to give it a little contrast to the smooth side I had picked to do my stamping on. The last step was a little glitter pen on the whipped cream and bow, and attaching it to a card base!

That's all for me today! I hope you enjoyed this fun card, and I'll see you again soon with another one!
