Christmas Spritz

 I am finally back in the swing of crafting.  It feels good to be creating a bit again.  Over the next few days I will be posting several different cards that I made using the masking technique and Smooch Spritz.    First I created the sentiment on My Digital Studio and printed it out.  Then I trimmed the cardstock so that it was the appropriate size.  Then I took a shape that I die cut from the Northern Frost Sizzlit Decorative Strip Die.  I used a bit of dotto to secure the snowflake and then sprayed the smooch over it.  Then I quickly removed the snowflake.  When the Smooch Spritz was dry, I used the Adhesive Eraser to remove any extra that was stuck on.  I let these pieces of spritzed paper sit for over a month.  I just couldn't find any time to finish the cards.  

But anyway, I digress... next I decided that the simple white cardstock needed something to jazz it up, so I pulled out my new Lucky Limeade orgazna ribbon from the upcoming Sale-a-bration catty.  I really love how delicate and versatile this ribbon is.  So I wrapped it around the cardstock and then added the bow.  I attached it together with some Luckey Limeade bakers twine and one of the adorable jingle bells in the current Holiday Mini. Then I added the Basic Jewel Rhinestone to the centre of the snowflake.   Finally I mounted it on Cherry Cobbler and then again on Old Olive cardstock
