Card Making Tutorial

I begum with a sheet of green card which I cut with the frame die

Using the stencil, the iced spruce was blended on and spritzed with the shimmer spray

I rotated the stencil and used the embellishment mouse. This was then left to dry

On a sheet of black card I heat embossed the don't worry sentiment using the blue glitter powder and fussy cut this out with a border

The rest of the sentiment was heat embossed in white and a banner created. 

Thank you for reading

Happy Crafting
