Focusing on Sentiment!

It was fun making a Christmas card Focusing on the Sentiment

Here is my Red and White Christmas Card.

I used Strathmore Bristol paper and sprinkled lightly with 
Color Burst Pigment Powder: Alizarin Crimson and spritzed with water.

After drying with my heat tool,  I spritzed with reactivated Lindy's Magicals spray using Peony Scarlet Red.  It has a pretty glimmer.  

Dried again and smooshed some SU Real Red diluted reinker to tone down the pink.

Next I stamped my STAMPlorations Typografia Christmas Stamp: "Christmas in the Heart" 
as my focus sentiment using Stazon Black ink.

Die cut my piece using my CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Die.
Added a few sequins and popped up using fun foam.

I am happy to have another card for my Christmas Stash:-)

I am adding my card to STAMPlorations Never Ending Anything Goes.

I am determined to not be so behind on my Christmas Card Stash this year:-)

Enjoy and Happy Stamping.  Hugs..
