Happy Little Stampers December 2016 Mixed Media Challenge – Anything Goes

Hi! I’m very happy to be here with you today with a card for Happy Little Stampers December Mixed Media Challenge.

Our  challenge:

Here’s my Christmas card.

I wanted to create a vintage looking card, reminiscent of my childhood memories of my parents’ Christmas trees. I used stamps from  Happy Little Stampers’ Mix Mash.

I started this card by creating by stamping the chevrons in green to create a Christmas Tree and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I added a Brusho Crystal Color background.img_3634edited
 I used the spray starch and cling wrap/plastic kitchen wrap technique. (Kylie Purtell has several videos showing how to use this technique.)

The stamped and embossed “tree” resisted the Brushos nicely.

Next, I stamped with the circles from Mix Mash to add some ornaments and heat embossed those in silver, turquoise, and red.

 As you can see, I designed, and then printed, my own digital sentiments on vellum. I included a PDF of the sentiments for you to use. Please click here or on the image below to be taken to the printable version.

I added the sentiment, along with some glitter paper, to the top of the card to finish it off.
