Hey ya’ll! Happy Monday! It’s the first week of the month, which means it’s time to start the Neat & Tangled Release Week! We have such a fun, festive release for you this month. And if you’ve been following my Instagram stories and post, you’ve probably had a few peeks into what I have in store with you this week.
I started with the background, blending ombre colors of Worn Lipstick and Tea Dye distress oxide inks. Then, I overlaid the background with the Fa La La stencil and used embossing paste. It’s been a while since I took out my embossing paste! But, glad I did as the background looked fabulous with it and the dimensions that the paste gives.
I used the Gift Card Box Additions dies to create the frame for the sentiment. The outside rectangle was out of kraft card stock, and the inside diamond is out of white card stock. I heat embossed the sentiment from the new Christmas Sentiments set in gold inside the diamond, and then used Tea Dye distress oxide ink to gently blend the edges.
Because I was working with the Fa La La background, it inspired me to use the Fa La Llama stamp set for my card. I stamped the llama in dark brown ink and colored him up with copic markers. Then, I used the coordinating dies to die cut him out. I added him to the right of the sentiment with foam tape. And as a final embellishment, I added a few wooden stars onto the card.
