Caroling Squad Pull Tab Card

Hi! Today I totally stepped out of my comfort zone and made a pull tab card using the Caroling Squad stamp set from Simon Hurley Create.! I made a LOT of mistakes along the way and I'm sharing them with you! Hope you enjoy!

This card started off easily enough - a little ink blending! I love blues and purples for Christmas, so I picked out some of my favorite Simon Hurley Create. dye inks and started blending! I started at the top with my darkest - and favorite! - Triple Berry, then moved to Remember Me, and ended with the lightest color - Clear Skies.

What's a Christmas card without some snow? Once my background was done I added some flicks of white watercolor all over the card front. I stamped a sentiment from the Caroling Squad stamp set and heat embossed it with Ranger Liquid Platinum powder. I stamped the tree and the boy from Caroling Squad and colored them with my alcohol markers.

Now here's where the mistakes started happening! Haha! I'm usually a pretty straight and narrow, clean and simple kind of girl - but for some reason I decided to step out on the ledge and create a pull tab card! Watch my video above to see all of my mistakes!

I assembled the tree and the little boy and created a pull tab card so that he hides behind the tree until you pull the tab and then you can see him! And even though there are obvious errors on this card, I'm so in love with it and I hope you are too! I'll see you soon!
