Mixed Media Holiday Card

Today I am playing with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge No. 188. I am using the bottom row: Rust, Any Color and Gold Foil/Glitter. 
Also submitting to NBUS for the stencil, Simple Mosaic, from A Colorful Life Designs is new.
I used American Crafts' Vicki Boutin's All the Good Things Foundation Paper - Mixed Media for the base of the card front. It's my favorite mixed media paper that I used for cards and art journal pages. It can take all you throw at it!  I laid down a layer of Altenew's Embossing Paste through the stencil with a palette knife.
Once dry, I put it in my Splat Box and sprayed almost all the Distress Spray Stains I have until I was happy with the mix of color.
The panel was cut with Tim Holtz's Deckle Edge Trimmer and adhered to an A2 cream color card base. The designs were cut with 2 square dies and a deer from my stash. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Gift of Christmas Stamp and Die Set.
I love the final results with all the different textures and layers! If you like to work with stencils (who doesn't?!) check out A Colorful Life Designs, a small business in Texas, woman owned. AnitaFan10 will get you 10% off your entire order at the shop (excluding bundles).
