The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Peace On Earth Christmas Card with Ink Smooshing.

Hello everyone and happy Friday!  Today, I have a beautiful Christmas card to share with you using one of the stamp sets and die sets from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

Here is a look at the card I designed.  Don't you just love the soft colors in the background?  I had some fun playing with the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks.  But you might be surprised to know I did the ink smooshing technique and achieved such light colors.  Actually I didn't lol.  The secret is to use a vellum overlay.

Here is a look at the paper with the smooshing technique.  The vellum makes such a huge difference.  I used im Holtz Distress Oxide Inks - Wilted VioletSalty Ocean, and Faded Jeans.  

I stamped the sentiment on to the Vellum and the star on to a piece of white cardstock using VersaMark Ink and then heat embossing with Ranger Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder.  I used the Stamp Simply Steel Dies - Merry Christmas Star SS-DIE008 to die cut the star.

Here is a close up of the star.  I added some imply Stories Record It Enamel Dots for embellishments and added Foam Tape to pop up the star.  I applied adhesive to the backside of the vellum where the star and enamel dots are to hold the vellum in place on the card front.

Here is a close of the sentiment and the background.

To finish off the card I trimmed down the watercolor and vellum and added foam tape to the back and then added the card front to a white A2 top folding card base.  This card came together pretty quick and easy and would be a great one to make multiples of if you don't mind your fingers getting a little inky.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  If you would like to see more card inspiration I encourage you to check out the Stamp Simply Blog.  All supplies used for the card are listed and linked below and can be found at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.
