Holiday Card Workshop - Day 2 - Card 1

Day 2 is all about using background stamps.  Jennifer McGuire showed a technique for stamping continuously over multiple die cut pieces.

Here is my version of this technique:

There were several other techniques in the lesson that I used here: scalloping the edges of the card, die cutting through the front of a card, and using a sentiment banner to float a diecut snowflake over the opening on the front of the card.

This was a fun card to work on but it did take a while to do.  There is a lot going on with this card.  Plus it brought out my love-hate relationship with glitter.  The Diamond embossing powder is pretty cool but it is very glittery and I feel like I got it everywhere.  Seriously, I need a glitter and embossing station in my craft room so that I can keep my work table clean.  It'll be driving me nuts for days.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
