Christmas Card idea using Stampin' Up! Sweetest TIme Stamp Set

I'm using the Sweetest Time Stamp Set again today, along with the coordinating Sweetest Border Dies.  I decided to make a monochromatic card using Coastal Cabana, Shaded Spruce, and Mint Macaron.  I used the North Pole Wonder Dies to create the sentiment.  The Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems include a collection of green-hued gems that were perfect accents for this card.

The basecard for this card is Coastal Cabana.  Then a layer of Shaded Spruce.  And then a layer of Whisper White brushed with very watered down Shaded Spruce ink using Water Painters.  To get it the shade I wanted, I used my brush to pick up some ink directly from the Shaded Spruce Stamp pad and I put it on a clear block, adding water from my Water Painter until it reached the light shade I wanted for my background.  I lightly brushed it onto the Whisper White card stock.  Tip:  Avoid going over and over your Whisper White card stock as it will begin to pill.  (Ask me how I know...😏). To avoid pilling, you could use Fluid 100 Water Color paper, but I like our Whisper White, which I find to be just a shade whiter than our Fluid 100 water color paper.

I stamped the candle images using Coastal Cabana ink onto Coastal Cabana cardstock.  I fussy cut two of the candles to use on my card.  The candle stamp has three candles, so you'll have an extra to use on another card. Then I used the largest die from the Sweetest Border Dies to create the greenery out of Mint Macaron cardstock. I also created extra leaves and sprigs using dies from the Sweetest Borders Dies and Shaded Spruce cardstock.

I selected the circle and stitched scallop dies from the North Pole Wonder Dies and cut a plain circle out of Whisper White for the sentiment, and cut a stitched scallop boarder out of Shaded Spruce cardstock.  Then I layered all of the elements onto the card front.  The sentiment is mounted on Dimensionals, while the remaining elements are adhered flat to the Whisper White card front.    I added 3 gems from the Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems pack.  Half of the package are gems with a green and gold hue, which worked perfectly with this card.
