And now, let's move into my second projects, that features the Free with 60$ Christmas String Lights Die-namics.

Well, I must say this design took me awhile, but I really love how the card turned out!

I firstly prepared the background panel: I took a piece of 3,5"x8,5" Smooth White cardstock and I ink blended with Distress Oxides in Shaded Liliac, Prize Ribbon and Black Soot, starting with the lighter color at the centre of my slimline panel. I kept blending until I wasn't happy with the smooth result. I then splattered some water drops and some Copic Opaque White to create some texture and let it aside to dry.

In the meanwhile, I started preparing all the die-cut pieces. I die cut six times the string of lights from some Silver Shine cardstock and I used the light bulbs die to cut all those tiny pieces from some colored cardstock (Lemon Drop, Snow Cone, Poppin Pink, Limelight and Cotton Candy).

When the panel was dry, I die cut it using the Slimline Starter die and I white heat embossed the giant sentiment which comes from Wishing You a Merry Christmas at the centre. With big sentiment like this one, you can have a better result if you double the heat embossing process, so the result is crispy and bold.

Now, I started gluing down all the tiny pieces: I first attached the six strings and then carefully glued the tiny bulbs. I then added a drop of Ranger Glossy Accent on each lights.

To complete the card, I simply added a 3,5"x8,5" piece of Smooth White cardstock to create a white frame around the colored panel.


Thanks for stopping by, I really hope you will like the result! Let me know what do you think and be sure to head over to the MFT blog: there is a chance to win a 25$ shopping spree if you comment there!
