Tim Holtz Inspirations Series - Holiday Knit Card

Hello Friends! I'm back with another post for the Tim Holtz Inspiration Series. The projects have been amazing!!!! How cute is this Holiday Knit Thinlits die set. I loved how Jan Hobbins used the die on her project yesterday!

The Holiday Knit Thinlits would be great for cards, or a special holiday layout, even a band around a present would be fun. Can't wait to play more with this die. 

Die cut strips from Kraft-core cardstock using the Holiday Knit Framelits set. Thinlits are perfect for those intricate images, just look at how tiny these pieces are. 

Carefully sand the pieces with a Sanding Grip then ink the edges with Distress Ink on an Ink Blending tool. 

Apply a piece of felt or batting to a piece of paper with Glue Stick. The paper is just to keep it stable. Draw a line for lining up the edge of the Holiday Knit strips. 

Add stitching around each strip then ink the edges with Distress Ink. 

Sand card and mat with a Sanding Grip then add a little Distress Ink.

Choose a little message from Small Talk Occasions, sand the edges then add Distress Ink on an Ink Blending Tool. Small Talk Occasions has so many fun sayings to use on all kinds of projects. 

Love how the felt pops through the die cut and makes it look like a real sweater. 

Tie Linen Ribbon around the card with a bow. Use a Loop Pin  to add a Type Token and Wreath to the bow. 

I also made a Metallic version of the card using Metallic Kraft-core. 

You can create such cool effects using the Metallic Kraft-core. 
Sand the cardstock in a circular motion to give it a brushed metal effect. 
I also love how it looks when embossed with a Texture Fade The raised area stays shiny and the rest is more matte and every Texture Fade reacts a little different. 

Thanks for stopping in!
