Hi again, Neat & Tangled friends!!  Lea Lawson here today to share another project as this month's guest designer!  I'm so excited about how this project turned out...I really hope that you like it!!

For today's card I combined the Christmas goodness of the Very Merry stamp set with the non-holiday themed Origami Maps stamp set, which paired together even better than I thought they would!  Check it out!!

Card Directions: 
  1. Cut an A2 card base from white orange peel textured cardstock. 
  2. Cut Strathmore art paper slightly smaller than the card base. 
  3. Stamp & heat emboss the origami map in white to the front, then let cool.
  4. Loosely watercolor the inside of the map in teal, then the outside in light blue.
  5. Let the watercolor dry completely, then lightly wipe the paint off the embossed lines.
  6. Lightly mist the back of the paper with water, & place between two books to flatten.  (It should take about 10 minutes to dry flat.)
  7. Once dry, adhere the watercolor block to the card base.
  8. Stamp the sentiment to the lower left corner in Versamark onyx black ink, then add a glittered @ sign to finish it.
  9. Diecut the santa sleigh & star from glittered paper, then adhere to the front with foam adhesive.
  10. Accent the star with a jewel to complete the card.
Thanks so much for checking out my card today!! I will be back next week with one more seasonal card to share with you as the guest this month.  Have a wonderful weekend!

Lea
