Hi! I’m thrilled to be guesting and sharing some Paper Smooches today! I love how Kim at Paper Smooches designs products so you can use old and new stamps and dies. I mixed some holiday products from last year and this year to create a cheerful holiday card:
I started by creating the pine branches. I die-cut the Paper Smooches Wreath Builder die out of October Afternoon Under the Tree paper. Next, I painted the edges of the branches with Gold Modeling Cream. The texture and gold shimmer on the branches is a lovely detail!
Next, I die-cut the larger Paper Smooches Mason Jar die out of watercolor paper and silver glitter cardstock. I lightly watercolored the jar and stamped a sentiment from the Holly Jolly set. I finished the jar with a few dots of Stickles and Lawn Fawn twine.
I couldn’t resist adding the adorable Cool Dudes snowman! I colored him with Copic markers and die cut him with the Cool Dudes Icons die. To finish the card, I cut a panel of the Under the Tree paper.
Thanks so much for letting me share some Paper Smooches today!
