25 Days of Christmas with Paper Sweeties

Wednesday, December 12, 2018

It's Day 13 of the 25 Days of Christmas with Paper Sweeties, y'all, which means it's my turn to share an appropriately-designed creation for the holiday season.  Enjoy!
I started this card by stamping a 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" piece of watercolor paper, in Jet Black ink, with the tree and "Merry Christmas Y'all" sentiment, coincidentally from the Merry Christmas Y'all stamp set, and watercoloring the tree and the background.
The Santa and gift bag, from the Jake and Santa Claus stamp sets, were stamped, in Jet Black ink, on scraps of watercolor paper; watercolored; hand-cut out; detailed with a Gold Gelly Roll pen; and popped up, with foam tape, to the right of the stamped and watercolored tree.
The entire design was then splattered with Titanium White acrylic paint for a little "snow" effect; framed with white cardstock and white-threaded, straight, machine stitches; wrapped with a length of Baker's Twine, tied in a bow in the top right corner of the prepped piece; and popped off the surface of the white, cardstock, card face, which had been dressed up with a piece of kraft, polka dot, patterned paper, anchored with more white-threaded, straight, machine stitching, with foam tape.
I hope you're enjoying hopping along to visit all my talented teammates this month and that you'll continue to do so right through Christmas day to keep up to date with everything new from Paper Sweeties.
I'll look forward to seeing you right back here, for a little more inspiration from the December Release, Merry Christmas Y'all and its coordinating Merry Christmas Y'all Sweet Cuts die, which just so happen to be available, even as I type this, in the Paper Sweeties Shop, next week.

Until then, thanks so much for taking time out of your busy, holiday seasons to visit my little, ol' blog.  Be blessed!
