We Wish You A Merry Christmas!

Hello! Emily Midgett here with you today as a guest for the wonderful Vanessa at Butterfly Reflections Ink! I'm so thrilled to be back here with you, and I have a super festive and fun watercolored card to share with you today, so let's get started!

First let's talk about the watercolor panel. I used Winnie and Walter's In Bloom: Elsa's Florals stamps to create a background using Versafine ink and clear embossing powder. With some super simple masking (like, I stamped one of the poinsettias on masking paper and used it repeatedly), I was able to create some pretty little mini-bouquets of holiday flowers and foliage. After I had stamped everything to my satisfaction, I used my Zig markers and a wet paintbrush to color the festive florals. 

I didn't want to cover up my painstakingly watercolored background, so I stamped the gorgeous greeting from the Merry and Bright stamp set, also from Winnie and Walter, onto some thin vellum and heat embossed it in white. I trimmed the panel down and added some dots of Ranger Multi Matte adhesive behind the embossing to try to hide it a little. I cut a red scalloped rectangle with my die cut machine, adhered the watercolored greeting panel onto it, then mounted the whole thing onto my top-folding card base with dimensional adhesive. 

Well, I hope you enjoyed this project! I'm so thrilled to be back guesting for Vanessa... she's awesome! Hope everyone is having a wonderful long weekend, filled with family, yummy food, and wonderful shopping!
