I've included a process video below, along with some photos and links to all of the products I used.
I started out using these Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Dies by Gina Marie Designs. I love anything with scallops and this is such a great set to have on hand. I used this along with the Stitched Rectangle Dies by Kat Scrappiness to create a frame. This left with me with a stitched piece to use in the center, where I'll do some ink blending.
I used some distress inks to do some light ink blending behind each of the lights. I used a stencil brush that I had on hand, but this could be done with any kind of blending tool that you have.
I then used my Stampoholic Nano stamping tool to stamp my sentiment, which came from the Lawn Fawn Merry Messages stamp set. This set has such a wonderful variety of sentiments. I wanted to incorporate a die cut word into my sentiment so I simply cut my stamp apart, taking out the word "Merry". Doing this really does give you more use out of your stamps, so don't be afraid to cut them apart. They fit right back together when you need them to.
Now it's time to assemble the card. I've added some foam tape behind the frame for added dimension and I cut the string die using some grey cardstock. I finished off the card with some of Kat's White Diamond Sequins, which add that extra twinkle.
I hope you enjoyed today's card. Thank you so much for stopping by! As always, the products I used are linked below. I'll see you next time!
