Die-Versions is celebrating Christmas in July with it's newest release. Today's card incorporates two of the 34 new dies released this month - Tis the Season Sweet Wordlet and Christmas Town Scene Whispers die.
This new die just shouted that it needed sparkle.....so I gave it lots of sparkle. I first die cut the Christmas Town Scene from black cardstock, covered the die cut with VersaMark and then heat set it using Velvet Sparkle embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle. Love how this sparkly embossing powder looks on dark cardstock.
Next, I trimmed a piece of white cardstock slightly smaller than my scene and repeated the process of heat embossing it with Velvet Sparkle embossing powder. After adhering the white cardstock to the back of the black cardstock, I used markers to color some of the glittered areas.
Using the new Tis the Season Sweet Wordlet, I die cut the sentiment from white cardstock and used the card base to give it color. A quick and easy way to insert those tiny little filler parts of the letters is to apply adhesive to the back of the words and then insert the little pieces. To eliminate the rest of the stickiness behind the sentiment, I added Lavender Iris glitter and burnished it in with my fingertip. Not only does it cover up the rest of the adhesive, it also adds a touch more shimmer to the project.
Paper piercing and ribbon are the finishing touches to this pretty quick and easy Christmas card.
