Merry Christmas

Good morning everyone! It's Cassie here, and I hope you're all having a great Wednesday. I'm back with another holiday card for you. Today's card uses some fun dies and a holiday stamp set to make a unique card.
I started the way I start a lot of my cards, and die cut the largest stitched rectangle from the Lawn Fawn set Stitched Rectangle Stackables. I die cut it from Bristol Smooth cardstock. Then I ink blended some Candied Apple and Brushed Corduroy onto the rectangle. Each color took up roughly half the panel. I saw someone use these colors together and really loved it! It did not disappoint. I spritzed the paper with my Distress Sprayer and dabbed the water with a paper toweling. I wanted it to have a very messy look.

  Then I took a sentiment from the Joy to the World stamp set from Hero Arts and stamped it in VersaMark in the center of the panel. I heat embossed it in white embossing powder. I love this stamp set because it has such a pretty font pairing. I also love the sentiments themselves. Next I took some more Bristol Smooth cardstock and die cut tons of the Paper Smooches Wreath Builder set. I think I ran them through about half a dozen times. To add some color to them I took my Distress Markers and scribbled some Evergreen Bough, Squeezed Lemonade and Crushed Olive on each die cut piece and used a paint brush and some water to smooth it out. This took a little bit of time, but the outcome was so pretty! I started attaching the branches in a circle, using my sentiment to guide where to place them, and that was it!
 Of course, I had to share a picture from the "photoshoot" because my little monster just couldn't leave this card alone! She was obsessed with the pine branches!

That's it for me today. I hope you enjoyed the card! I'll be back soon with another one :)
