Christmas Card 2015 #1

I recently watched two videos from Jennifer McQuire Ink You Tube channel and combined the techniques into one card and I love how it turned out and made two at once.

 I cut my 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 panel at an angle, any angle will do use whatever you prefer.
 To make it easier I went direct from pad to paper to get full coverage of ink and make it faster.

I then added some green perfect pearls and wiped off excess with a cloth.

I used Mowed Lawn distress ink.

 I used a Paper Studio Holiday embossing folder, use the directions for which machine you have in your craft room.

I added some red stickels to the berries.
 Using some American Crafts glitter paper and a merry die by Stamps of Life.

I added some double sided adhesive to the back of the glitter paper to make sticking down the die cut easier.
I always save my old blades from my fiskars trimmer and use them to cut glitter paper, I just use a permanent marker and write old on them.
 Using some double sided strong tape on the back of the embossed piece but you can also use liquid glue if you prefer.
 A little strip of Tombow liquid glue at the top and added a strip of glitter paper to the edge.
I changed out the glitter merry die for the same green technique I used for the main panel, just didn't emboss it.

Close up, the pearl powder gives it a metal type look.

Some basic supplies I use I purchase from Hobby Lobby or Micheal’s with coupons or on sale
