Hello Lovelies! I have a paid of bold vintage-esque christmas Cards from the very merry Tim Holtz and Stampers Anonymous Holiday 2022 Release.
The Department Store Stamp Set used here gives you generous detailed wreath and bell images which I stamped on top of Mica-stained cardstock and then stenciled with Texture Paste. The stamp and stencil sets can be purchased individually or you can get all the new Holiday goodies in a bundle available at Simon Says Stamp.
To keep things even more festive, Tim released new Crayons, Mica Stains, paper etc. that I got also got a chance to explore with on this monochromatic card. You may already know that also available as a bundle from Simon Says Stamp.
This card is all about bold images and color. Stains and crayons make a statement here and stencils complete the festivities!
Apart from the gorgeous stamps, this project will use stencils from the new release and as mentioned, several of the new Holicay Crayons and Mica Stain. Take a peek at the essentials below:

EMBOSSED AND CRAYON-ACCENTED CARD BASE
The artwork on this stamp gives me all the best Christmas feels!
I really wanted to emboss these but was worried about losing the awesome details, but you should try it to make it stand out even more!
I have no explanation for this glitter, but it just makes things all the more merry!
For the Opaque Texture Paste, you may want to consider adding a fixative if you don't like the mess like me!
Layered with just a peek of the embossed pines underneath helps give a little lift to the intense card front.
That pink is intense but very MERRY!!!
Here is our very Christmassy pair!
