Hello Birch Press friends! I am excited to be back on the blog today sharing a Rustic Holiday card using the Crochet Snowflake Layering die set! I love the layers in this set and had a lot of fun creating a rustic holiday design! So let’s get started!

For today’s card I started with the Crochet Snowflake Layering die set. I started by die cutting Layer C out of a gel print from my stash. Then I die cut Layer B using the Earth Neutral Paper Pad by Memory Box. I chose a brown piece of card stock from the collection and die cut layer B. Next I die cut Layer A using the Festive Glitter Pad by Memory Box. Once all 3 layers were due cut, I adhered the layers together using liquid glue.

Next I started to work on the background for my card. I started with a gelli print from my stash. I adhered the gelli print onto a piece of kraft card stock. Next I distressed the edges using a distress tool. I then added distress ink around the edges, as well as a green shade of embossing glaze. I added embossing ink to various section of the card panel, then added the glaze and heat set with my heat gun. I added a bit more distress ink to darken sections of the edges and card panel.

I then added a few paper strips using gelli prints. I wanted to keep that distress look and ripped the paper strips for added texture. I added a small piece of text pattern paper to the center as well. I adhered the strips together using liquid glue. I then added splatters to the card panel background using white acrylic paint, as well as metallic splatters. Once dry, I adhered the strips to the card panel, and adhered the Crochet Snowflake using foam tape.

To complete my card I chose the Find Joy and Outline sentiment die set. I die cut the shadow layer using vellum. I die cut the Find Joy script using paper from the Lush Green paper pad from Memory Box. I die cut the sentiment Find Joy 4 times and adhered them together with liquid glue. I added a bit of distress ink to various sections of the sentiment with my blending tool. I then adhered this to the vellum shadow layer and then onto the card panel using liquid glue.

I completed the card with a few Fairy Drops. Thanks so much for stopping by today! I had a lot of fun and I hope you enjoy making a Rustic Holiday card!
