Merry Christmas Caroler!

Hope everyone is enjoying their Wednesday! I wanted to whip up a quick card for my daughter's music teacher and of course I had to use the adorable Little Carolers stamp set by Pretty Cute Stamps! The Believe Heidi Swapp paper from the 6x6 paper pack was perfect as well with its pretty reds and music note papers. I edged my papers with Distress Ink and punched my snowflake border strip with a scalloped edged border punch. Then I stamped the music notes on the coordinating SVG outlines and, after attaching them to my border, I added some Crystal embossing powder for shine.

I paper pieced the pretty caroler's dress with more Believe paper, coloured her in with Prismacolor Markers and layered her on a circle I diecut with my Cricut Explore. You can see a bit of the shimmer on the circle - I achieved this by rubbing my cut lightly with Versamark ink and adding some Crystal embossing powder. It gives a clear, but shiny coating after heat setting.
