My Christmas Card

During my Christmas Card Stamp Camps I offered a total of 9 different cards for my ladies to make.  So when it come time to send out a Christmas card to them to recognize their support and friendship it mean’t making a 10th design.

Now that Christmas is behind us for another year I thought I would share this 10th card……………………

They are both the same design and feature one of my very favorite techniques ~ Heat Embossing.

One card is Silver embossed on a Brushed Gold layer then attached to a Very Vanilla base card.  The other is Gold embossed on Brushed Silver layer then attached to a Whisper White card base.

Measurements for cards are:

Base card ~ 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 ~ scored at 4 1/4

Silver/Gold layer ~ 5 1/4 x 4

I used the single stamp ‘Christmas Bauble’ and Versamark ink for the image, then sprinkled with the embossing powder before applying the heat gun.  Once this was cool I stamped ‘Merry Christmas’ using the ‘Endless Wishes’  stamp set. You could stamp both images and emboss together, but I prefer to do them separately so I can get a good placement for my message to my bauble!!

The layer was attached to the base card with snail adhesive and the little twist of 1/8 gold or silver ribbon attached with a glue dot and a pearl as a final flourish.

By the way these two stamp sets are only available until January 5th….. see the list below to get yours!

A very simple card but it had some impact and I was pleased with the final result.

Here are the main supplies used:
