Etched Delicate Frond – Handmade Holiday

Hello friends it is time for a new release from Simon Says Stamp and this one is absolutely amazing. So many awesome products for your Holiday or even non Holiday making. Today I am sharing a card I made using the beautiufl Etched Delicate Frond. Lets get started 🙂

For me it is always about creating a bunch of backgrounds and having them on hand. I created a few panels using a mix of distress inks and oxides and die cut a few of the fronds. I thought I was going to using a couple but ended up changing my mind as I was creating…that is something that happens to me often.

I used distress watercolor cardstock for this make. Pulled out the beautiful Old Letter background stamp from SSS and inked it up with hickory smoke archival ink. I did stamp it off once on scrap paper and then stamped on the cardstock. Love that it inked up darker in some spots. I used the Mosaic stencil from Stampers Anonymous and Matte texture paste and covered parts of the panel.

After the panel had completely dried I inked the paste with speckled egg , antique linen and added splatters using pumice stone. I decided on adding a velum die cut as well, I used Bazzill 40lb vellum.

Everything looks better with glitter . I spritz the die cuts with resist spray and added the new TH tinsel glitter using the glitter duster. When working with resist spray I use an old amazon box. Don’t use it on the desk or near your computer, it is so hard to get off. Ask me how I know…ROFL!!

I roughted up the edges of the cardstock and popped it up on fun foam. Glued down the vellum piece first. I only added glue down the centre and a few of the petals . Added some clear sequins to finish it off and a fun sentiment from SSS sentiment strips.
