Magnolia Stamp "Believe" Card by Louise

Hi I am here today to share a Christmas card using a Magnolia stamp and gorgeous new Kaiser Craft Santa's List papers.  You will find a large selection of these stamps in the shop at Scotties and they are REALLY awesome to colour.  And the papers will be in store soon if they aren't already :)

Here is a step by step on how I put my card together....

I always cut my diecuts that I want to use on my card first as space is at a premium on my table and I hate having to move everything to get my cuttlebug out ;)  So I started by cutting BLITZEN out in plain white card, a decorative circle in red cardstock and my stamped image with a circle die.

Next I poured some Stickles Stardust dry glitter into my stamping tray in a pile, then got another tray ready with clear embossing powder. I put both within easy reach as I will need them quickly for the next step...

I took my die cut Blitzen and versmarked him, then coated it with the clear embossing powder and heated until melted, while the clear embossing powder was still wet I put the diecut wet side down into the glitter, I then repeated the process three times. At the end I had a very sparkly, smooth coated reindeer to add to my project.....

Next I took my image which had been stamped in stazon on watercolour paper (which had been diecut  previously) .....

I used a blending tool & Distress Ink in Barn Door and inked the edges of my diecut....

I then coloured my image with Distress Markers and a water pen....

Next I layered up my papers and image and added my reindeer diecut to my card base....

Then I added a sentiment which was made using the letterpress technique and gold spellbinder sentiments and pigment ink.  I added a selection of flowers to finish and here is my end result.....

Thanks loads for joining me here today and I hope you like my card.   Happy Scrapping :)
