Don't get your Tinsel in a Tangle Card by Katelyn G

Hey Wild Whisper Fans, Katelyn here! I'm happy to be back on the blog sharing my Don't get your Tinsel in a Tangle Card which features the Christmas Comfort Collection. To create my project, I've used a variety of the papers from the Christmas Comfort Collection, the Ephemera, the Card Pack and the Flair buttons to create my card. You'll want to grab a glass of your favourite Christmas beverage as I will walk you through how to recreate my piece at home.

From the Fa La La paper, you'll need to cute two pieces, one that measures 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" and a second piece that measures 4 3/4" x 4 3/4". Distress the edges of each patterned paper piece. Ink the edges of each patterned paper piece using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.

From the burlap paper, cut a piece that measures 4 1/2" x 4 1/2". Place a tree stencil onto the paper. Apply Emboss It Ink through the stencil randomly. Take the stencil off. Sprinkle Pine Needles Embossing Powder overtop of the stenciled images. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Distress the edges of the paper.
