Festive Friday #16| HO HO HO

Happy Friday everyone!! It's time for the Festive Friday Blog Hop hosted by Terri Sproul again. This bi-monthly blog hop features Holiday cards from many talented card crafters as we get our Christmas cards ready early this year.

If you reached this stop from Becky's blog BC Designs , then you are in the right spot! If you would like to start from the beginning, you can return to Terri's blog.
This Festive Friday I wanted to try another fast card only this time using some of my other favorite toys...chipboard, distress inks and stains, Sakura Hobby Craft 3D Crystal Lacquer...and Bazzill Basics cardstock! YUM!
The letters were craft-colored chipboard from a pre-cut set of letters. I sanded off the connecting tabs and then covered the top and sides with Barn Red distress ink. Then I stamped in Peeled Paint distress ink the swirly background stamp that I also stamped on the light green card stock for the back ground. I squeezed on Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer to gloss up the letters and add some cool dimension that can be viewed in the photo angle below! The letters were placed on the light green that had been edged with Peeled Paint stain and stamped.
love this angle where you can see all the yummy 3D goodness of the crystal lacquer
The letters were adhered with foam tape, and the edge of the Kraft base kissed with Barn Red distress ink. I hope you enjoyed my Ho-Ho-Ho Card! Thank you for stopping by!
The next stop on the hop is Laura Fisher's blog. If you get lost on the way, the entire list is below!
