Holiday Card Series 2016 – Day 4

Happy Friday, all! I’m using brand new stamps and dies on today’s card in the Holiday Card Series 2016. Simon Says Stamp just introduced their Believe In the Season release and I couldn’t wait to so you all some of the products I designed for it! :)

To see the complete release, visit the Simon store HERE. Here are a few of the items I designed for the release…

For Day 4 of the Holiday Card Series, I thought I would use the snowflake dies as masked and add some Distress Paint over the top. The three larger snowflakes (Anna, Marisa, and Aubrey) are named after my sisters and sister-in-law. The smaller snowflakes come in a set called Snow Flurries. These snowflakes might look familiar, too! They first appeared in my Cute Snowflakes stamp set last year. :)

Since Distress Paint isn’t as wet as watercolor, I was able to get away with using regular cardstock for the masking and painting. I made sure to remove the masks while the paint was still wet. If the paint had dried, it would have been difficult to remove the masks.

I die cut the outer shape from the Believe die set using vellum, the Believe word using white cardstock, and adhered them together. I paired the die cuts with a stamped and embossed sentiment from the Believe stamp set.
