Hello there, today I have the pleasure of taking part in a blog hop to celebrate the release of new digi-stamps by Steph Made It For You. She is releasing some gorgeous French sentiments and I am using the beautiful Joyeux Noel one for my card today.
I started off by printing the sentiment on to some Canson watercolour paper. As you can see, I kept the sentiment large to be the focal point on the card. Once the paper came out of my printer, I quickly applied clear embossing powder. Since my printer is an Inkjet, the ink stays wet for a little while and if you are quick, you can heat emboss. I then set the embossing powder with my heat gun.
I ran the paper through my Cuttlebug using the Mama Elephant rectangle Femme Frames die. While I was die cutting, I also cut the SSS Ashlynn Snowflake die from mask paper. These were adhered to the panel and I took Distress Inks in Broken China and Shaded Lilac and blended these over. I then misted over a mixture of water and Perfect Pearls to give a subtle shimmer (sadly you cannot see it in the photo but it is there!). The panel was adhered to a white A2 card base with foam tape. I then added some Lucy's Little Things Lagoon sequins, along with a few Sparkling Stars to finish it off.

A really simple card but I think it would be a good one to mass produce for Christmas. Thanks so much for visiting me today. I hope you have fun in the hop and have a great week!
