I wish you a merry Christmas (Create A Smile)

It's time for another card that I made with the Snow Dance Kit by Create A Smile! Because I seem to love Kraft card stock currently so so much, I hade to to use it for this card as well. For this card I wanted to include the beautiful stencil from the kit. I used a sponge dauber and Yeti pigment ink from Lawn Fawn and applied the ink onto the card stock trying to be very gentle. If you use to much pressure, ink might pool up behind the stencil.

After applying the ink,  I used a brush and brushed Perfect Pearl over it as long as it was still wet. This gives the snowflakes a really nice and beautiful effect. Unfortunately, you can't really see it on the pictures but in real life it's so so nice.

The sentiment I used is from another new stamp set from Create A Smile. It says "Ich wünsche dir frohe Weihnachten" (I wish you a merry Christmas). I stamped it with VersaMark ink and embossed it with red embossing powder by WOW. 

To finish off the card, I used one of the little santas that I colored for the Daily Marker Challenge in October and places him with 3D foam squares on the card. He was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Solar White card stock and colored with Spectrum Noir markers (hat/jacket/gloves: CR10, CR11, DR2 and Liquid Appliqué, face: FS2, FS3, boots: IG6, IG8).
