Sugar Pea Mix It Up Challenge #61

Another fun Christmas Card Challenge for Sugar Pea Designs. This one is a Mix-Up, so you can be inspired by either the colors on the left, or the sketch on the right, or both!

I used both for my card. I love to watercolor cards and create backgrounds. To start, I cut a 2 -5" X 7" piece of Arches 140 lb. cold press paper and secured it to an acrylic board. I use delicate painter tape. I then wet the entire piece with wide brush and then dropped on the following colors using my Kuretake Gansi Watercolors and a No. 8 Silver Black Velvet:
No. 58 Green
No. 44 Khaki
No. 20 Brown
No. 90 Gold.
I have such a large picture to try to show the center white panel. I used Simon Hurley's Back Splash Stencil over Neenah 100 lb. white card stock. I just dabbed Versamark over and over with the full pad straight down until the stencil design was covered. Then I used Ranger Detailed White Embossing powder over all of it and heat set. Once dry, I ran it through my Big Shot with one of Kat Scrappiness' Never Ending Rectangles.

Once the watercolor paper was dried, I cut out a star with my's Nested Star Die set. I also ran the other finished piece through my Big Shot with  one of Kat Scrappiness' Stitched Rectangles to give a nice clean edge.

The sentiment was gold heat embossed on MFT's Mike Chocolate card stock using a's sentiment from Holly Jolly and Nuvo Glitter Embossing Powder - Gold Enchantment. Just beautiful, but hard to capture in a photo. The fun shape for the sentiment strip was from MFT's Tag Builder Blueprint #6. A few Studio Katia gold foil pearls finished the front of the card.
The inside is also from the Holly Jolly stamp set with a small water-colored star and the little reindeer from that set.

I've linked all the products used below if you are interested in checking them out. With a few basic supplies, you can get a wide range of cards!

Thanks for sticking to the end!
