Simon Says: Traditional Christmas

Hello crafty friends! It's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

This week Simon Says: Traditional Christmas! The design team is featuring always amazing Tim Holtz producs! It isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!

Come join in on the fun, you have the chance of winning a $50 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!

So I chose to use Mr. Snowman by Tim Holtz for my card today. I mean seriously, how adorable is this die set??? And, he is so easy to layer, all the pieces are marked including the color coding. I die cut all of my pieces and put him together using multiple cardstocks (listed below). I went rogue and used my color scheme and not what is suggested, lol!

I have also, as you may have noticed, been obsessed with this Brutus Monroe Candy Cane paper this season. So I lined the sides of my card base with it... again. lol!

I ink blended some Peacock Feather Distress ink and added some Tonic Glitter paste using the Simon Says stamp falling snow stencil. Once that was dry, I decided it needed more snow, so I used my Picket Fence Distress paint with some water and added my flecks and I let it dry

I die cut two stitched snow borders and added them to the bottom of my panel and glued my snowman to the panel.

I used the Tim Holtz sentiment and die cut it from Tonic Scarlett Organza Specialty Paper and added it to the card.

To finish off, I added some red sequins and some white gel pen detail.
