All is Calm, All is Bright-30 Days of Christmas, Day 8

Hello, Beth Norman here with a very fun card. Today is Day 8 of the 30 days of Christmas and I am thrilled to show you what I did! Even I get intimidated when I have something in mind and wonder if it is going to turn out.  I held my breath from the beginning to the end, hoping it would turn out, and it did.

I started by pulling out my background stamp called Pinecones, then using a sponge dauber on the pine needles with SU's Old Olive and the pinecones with Walnut Stain using Distress Stain.  Next, while holding my breath, I lightly spritzed water over the entire background stamp very lightly, and quickly stamped my stamp onto ivory coloured cardstock.

After allowing the background to fully dry, I covered the entire surface with VersaMark and sprinkled Tsukinek #06 Sparkle over top and then heat embossed.

My last step was to stamp out All is Calm onto ivory cardstock and die cut it with an oval scallop die. I then distressed the sentiment with Old Olive.

You can see the shine below.

Please don't forget to come back tomorrow for more of the 30 Days of Christmas.
