PTI Star Search Contest Entry

Happy Friday!

So, last month, I made a video to apply for the 
Papertrey Ink Star Search Video Contest
and I thought I'd share it here on my blog today,
along with the card I made.

Here's my video:

And here's my card:

I created my card by using my MISTI (and some masking!)
and stamping my buildings from PTI's City Scene twice --
once in grey inks and the second time in colour.
I diecut the Mat Stack 5 die from the centre of my colour panel and adhered it to my grey buildings
with dimensional adhesive.


I diecut the Holiday die twice -- once from white and a second time from black cardstock
and then stacked them together, overlapping them slightly so you can see the white.
I also diecut the car and tree and stamped them, as well as the "wishes",
which I heat embossed in white.

Thanks for looking!
