{Sunny Studio Stamps} Merry Sentiments

Hi, everyone! Today, I'm sharing a card using the Merry Sentiments mini stamp set. I created a two-line sentiment to frame this festive couple from Sending My Love. After heat embossing and watercolouring with distress inks, I fussy cut the animal heads, bodies and their gifts. The heads and gifts are popped up with foam tape.

The sentiments were first heat embossed on watercolour cardstock. Then I gave a two-colour wash with a large, flat brush, and added bright yellow and black splatter.  I die cut several snowflakes from Santa's Helpers and strategically adhered them to cover up some smudges at the top of the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I love the casual but artistic look of this card. I am going to try a card like this. Thanks for inspiring me again.
