Christmas Card with Dana

Hello, WOW! friends!

It's Dana here and I'm back with another Christmas theme card today.

To start, I die cut card cover from WOW! Superior Smooth White Cardstock using Altenew Striped Leaf Cover Die. I rubbed it with WOW! Embossing Pad and sprinkled WOW! Verdigris Embossing Powder. I heat set it using WOW! Dual Speed Heat Tool.

Next, I mounted double-sided tape onto white card stock and die cut it using Altenew Holiday Script Words Die. I peeled it off and sprinkled WOW! Pumpkin Spice Glitter.

I white heat embossed another sentiment on red card stock and trimmed it down as shown.

I mounted cover panel onto white woodgrain cardstock and popped all elements using foam adhesive where I wanted them.

I embellished with Studio Katia Gold Foil Pearls and finished off this card.

Thank you so much for joining me today. Hope you stop by HERE and get more inspiration from our Facebook Monthly Challenge!

I wanted to create something bright and bold and had great fun deciding which pinks to go with and after several test pieces I came up with a range I think work best. I absolutely love the way it turned out and how the colours blend into one another. 

Using the Super Smooth card, I started at the top with the lightest shade (I stamped all of my images in one go). The trick I think is to let each shade slightly …
