Always on the Nice List Card by Samantha Mann for Newton's Nook Designs, Santa, Christmas, Cards, Handmade Cards, Distress Oxide Inks, Ink Blending, #newtonsnook #distressoxide #inkblending #christmas #cards


I colored all of the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, and then used the coordinating dies to die cut them out!
oh my goodness, I can't tell you how much I love these santa images!

I used Distress Oxide Inks in Lucky Clover, Twisted Citron and Squeezed Lemonade! then I splattered some water and white acrylic ink on the background to make it looks like snow!

I finished off the card with some various-sized sequins!

my other card uses the new Reindeer Stencil and Nutcrackers stamps and dies!

I tried something different, for me anyway!
I used some white flock on most of the reindeer, and the prettiest, orangey-bronzey foil for a few of the reindeer!

I also die cut the sentiment from the Nutcrackers Die Set, and then used glossy accents on top to add some shine and height to the letters!
it's hard to see, but in real life, this card is just awesome with the flocky and foily textures together!
