Home for the Holidays...

Hello friends!  I'm back today sharing my last project that I created for the Tim Holtz Holiday Inspiration Series.  This Christmas Card was created using the new "Home for the Holidays" Tim Holtz Sizzix Seasonal dies.  When I was dreaming up this card, I thought it would be fun to use a mint green, pink and red color palette.  Let me walk you through how I put it together.
To start with, I painted a thin layer of white gesso on 3 sheets of Distress Mixed Media Heavystock.  Then applied a coat of Distress Collage Medium Matte to the gessoed Heavystock and a sheet of Distress Woodgrain Cardstock, let air dry.  This will allow the Distress Crayons to glide over the cardstock and blend well.  I die cut all the paper pieces from the gessoed Heavystock.
The car wood panels were die cut from the Distress Woodgrain Cardstock.
I applied various colors of Distress Crayons to all cutouts to achieve color and shading.
I used Metallic Distress Crayons and Distress Rock Candy Dry Glitter to add a bit of shimmer and sparkle.  It's hard to translate thru the photos but, in person it creates a beautiful sparkle and shimmer!
I assembled the card to kraft card base and layered mat with silver Metallic Kraft Cardstock.  I tied the Christmas tree to the top of the car with a little red and white twine.
I hope you'll give it a try!  You can find the supplies I've used via the links below.  If you have any questions please let me know I love your comments, I truly appreciate each and everyone of them!  As always thanks for stopping by and I'll see you next time!  xx
