Hello Bluebird - Be Merry Office Party Card

Hi there! Today I'm happy to be sharing a card showcasing new stamps and dies from Hello Bluebird's November release.  I've mixed it up for this one and combined some of the stand alone dies with the adorable Holiday Office Party critters.  

All Hello Bluebird stamps and dies used are listed below:

This card is A2 size.  I started with some kraft card stock and die cut with this deckle edged die.  I sponged white pigment ink onto the outer edges and then splattered the entire panel with white paint. 

All die cut elements were cut from white card stock and then colored with a blender brush and Distress Oxide inks.  (colors used: pine sprigs - Bundled Sage, Pine Needles, Walnut Stain; berries - Festive Berries; Be Merry word - Spun Sugar & Festive Berries) I added a generous coating of Unicorn Stickles to the Be Merry die cut.  

I Copic colored two of the cute critters from Holiday Office Party.  Copic
