30 Days of Christmas - Day 24

Hello and welcome to day 24 of our 30 days of Christmas ... the Technique Junkies Design Team will be posting a Christmas project on the blog from October 15th through November 13th, so be sue to check back every day for some inspiration, also if today is your first time here scroll back to the start date October 15th so you don't miss anything.

Also, all Technique Junkies Christmas Stamps are on Sale through November 13th ... you will save 20% off all Christmas stamps AND you can also use my code TJ10Stephanie for an additional 10% off your entire order (you can stack the %-off for this Christmas celebration).

I love the gorgeous Green of Luscious Lawn Shimmering Mist for Holiday card designs.  

I used the Shimmering Mist with the Flowing Drops Stencil from A Colorful Life to create my background.  It's a large stencil, so I was able to create a 5"x7" card base.

I stamped Technique Junkies Vintage Merry Christmas in coordinating Green Ink and die cut with a Postage Stamp Die.  I finished with a wrap of Green Seam Binding and a big Christmas bow.

After I sprayed my stencil, I used a second piece of cardstock to soak-up the excess spray ... that gave me two backgrounds to use.

This card uses the second background (and a had enough background left for a third card if I want).

I added a Polaroid camera die (because in our family, many of our childhood Christmas memories involve Polaroid photos).  I added the Technique Junkies All is Calm Sentiment and one of the snowflakes from the new Technique Junkies Snowflakes Stamp Set.

Have you used some Shimmering Mist to make Holiday Cards?  If so, we'd love if you linked them up in the Technique Junkies Facebook Group (you can also check it out for lots of Technique Junkies inspiration).
