Hi Guys! It's Kara and I'm back again to share one more project featuring the new Holiday Release products. I'm so excited that I have gotten a jump start on my Christmas cards.
I started this design by creating a frame. I used the two largest Stitched Rectangles from the new 4 Bar Die, (you can find all of the supplies linked at the bottom of this post). I adhered the frame to my card base with some dimensional adhesive. I then placed in some Holiday Houses at varying levels to create depth.
These houses look adorable colored with Copics or watercolored, but I chose to leave them as just simple outlines and add pops of color with the Be Merry Florals stamped in vibrant non-traditional holiday colors. I used Cranberry Crush and Gala Apple for the flowers and New Leaf, Ocean Drive, and Falling For Blue for the leaves.
For the sentiment I stamped and die cut 'Be Merry' from the new Be Merry stamp set and coordinating dies. I chose to stamp it all in black and leave it uncolored to match the black and white house and tie everything together. I added the die cut 'Christmas' from the Christmas Tag Die and colored the white die cut with Falling For Blue ink for a perfect match to my stamping.
Thanks so much for stopping by. See you again soon!
