Handmade Holiday Instagram Blog Hop | Simon Says Stamp

Welcome back, friends!

I’m participating in the Simon Says Stamp release Instagram hop today, and we are featuring the Handmade Holiday release! This simple and airy card features the new Etched Delicate Frond wafer die (one of my personal favorites). I combined it with a subtle background created with acrylic sprays!

To create the background, I used Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays in Heather, Mineral, and Sand. These are super fun and easy to create backgrounds! I then die cut the Etched Delicate Frond wafer die in white cardstock and dipped the tips in embossing in than gold embossing powder.

Before adhering the panel onto a card base, I cut it with the Stitched Rectangles die then adhered the embossed frond to the center. To finish, I stamped, heat embossed and trimmed down the 'Peace Love Joy' sentiment from the Winter Birds stamps set before adhering it with foam adhesive.

I hope you enjoyed learning more about this non-traditional-themed holiday card! You can find all of the products and links below! Please be sure to join us for this fun Instagram hop for more inspiration and prizes!
