MFT October Release Countdown Day 5

This month's release is full of Christmas goodness to give you a head start on
your holiday card making. 

Today I'm sharing a card using a fun Die-namics called Ho Ho Ho. There are several 
ways to use this die. The negative space could be used for a shaker card, or to inlay 
your choice of patterned papers or card stock.

I chose to die cut the sentiment twice and ink up the letters in ombré fashion in reds
and greens, then spattered them with water. I cut a 5" square card base then covered
it with striped patterned paper. I'm becoming a fan of a striped border peeking out
from the edge of the card.

A 4.75" square of white card stock was centered over it, then the letters were 
adhered on top. I finished off the card with a white embossed sentiment on a strip
of black card stock.
