Very Merry Christmas with Amy Yang

Our 15K instagram winner Amy Yang is back today with her final project.  We've so enjoyed having her with us this month, and we know you guys have too.  Here's Amy with all the details:

Hello there! Amy here with my final post as a special guest for December. Before I start, I'd like to thank Neat and Tangled for this great opportunity. I loved working with your products and enjoyed this experience.

Today I have for you a Christmas card using the Box Die, Beary Merry stamp set and the coordinating Beary Merry Nice And Neat Dies.

I started by die cutting the box using white cardstock. I love how this box added interest and dimension to my card. I used the star cluster from Beary Merry and stamped it using versamark ink. Afterwards, I embossed it using white powder. I used mermaid lagoon distressink and applied it to the front of the box as well as the inside. I then stamped and colored my images on white cardstock with copic markers and die cut them with coordinating dies. 

On the bear’s scarf, I used white gelly roll pen to add some lines to give it a knitted look. Then I had him hold the mug, took the other images and placed them inside the box using double sided tape.

At this point I decided to use Kraft paper as the front panel of my card. I used the sentiment “have a very merry christmas" and embossed it with white powder. I adhered the box and the bear to the front of the card. I added two layers of foam tape to the bear so that he can be in the front of the box. To finish, I added some sequins from Ocean Waves Sequin Mix.

Thank you for stopping by!
