Today I'm excited to be sharing a card as part of Kylie's Twelve Days of Christmas Cards Challenge.
For twelve days Kylie is sharing a different handcrafted Christmas card and has some friends from blogland joining her each day along the way. I'm delighted to have been asked to join her today, which is Day 11. So please do click back through Kylie's posts if you've missed the previous posts with some wonderful inspiration.
Kylie is my 'boss lady' at Happy Little Stampers (and also at Addicted to Stamps and More where I was previously a DT member). I also had the pleasure of meeting this wonderful lady back in July at the Happy Little Stampers Craft Retreat, she's an absolute star.

So, onto my card, and I've used one of the new sets from the latest Happy Little Stampers release, Christmas Joy...
On a panel of white cardstock I masked off the top half and firstly stamped my holly images in VersaMark before heat embossing in white. I then used the emboss resist technique to blend over three different green shades of Distress Ink before removing the mask. I then used the watercolour lift technique by adding water to the leaves and lifting the colour away with a paper towel. I stamped the sentiment in black and adhered the panel onto the card base using 3D foam. I then added some Stickles in pink....after looking for red Stickles which I don't actually own! lol
