Holiday Cheers from Guest Designer Bri Firth!
Hi friends – Bri Firth here again! I have really enjoyed being the Guest Designer for November 2022. My last project features the Holiday Anya 8 set. Keep reading below for more details on how I created this winter-themed card.
For the background, I used a tree stencil with Mowed Lawn, Rustic Wilderness, and Pine Needles Distress Oxide inks to create a rustic pattern. I also used the Mowed Lawn to distress the edges of the front panel.
Next, I used silver metallic paint to ink splatter the front panel to coordinate with Anya’s elegant dress. Once the panel dried, I used liquid adhesive to adhere it to the silver foil and dark green cardstock layers creating an A2 card front.
Anya was colored with Copic markers. I used white gel pen to add sparkle detail to her dress and jewelry to make her outfit even more elegant.

The “cheers!” sentiment is heat embossed with silver embossing powder onto a sentiment strip die cut. The strip is 3/4 inch wide and roughly 2 ½ inches long.
I used foam tape to attach the sentiment strip and Anya to the front of the card in the lower right-hand corner. To finish the card, I added green enamel dots for embellishment.
Hope my creation inspires you today!
