Today I have some Christmas cards to share, inspired by this months challenge over on the Facebook fan group page.
I love to use embossing on my Christmas cards as it always adds a touch of elegance and sparkle.
To begin, I used my favourite White Pearl embossing powder to add stencilled snowflakes to my backgrounds with a Pretty Pink Posh stencil. When used on white card, the pearl effect is subtle and pretty as it catches the light.
Next, I stamped the large sentiment from the Pretty Pink Posh Joy stamp set with clear embossing ink. I embossed the patterned letters with Metallic Gold Rich super fine embossing powder on one card and Metallic Silver Super Fine for the other card. I die cut the letters using the coordinating dies, adding two more layers of the dies cut for dimension.
Instead of using the O from the word Joy, I decided to replace it with a die cut bauble. For each card, I die cut a Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Ornament bauble three times. On the top layer, I covered with embossing ink and embossed with Ruby Romance and Midnight Dream embossing glitters.
For the top part of the baubles, I die cut them pearl gold and silver card and layered them on top.
I adhered the letters and baubles on to my cards. From each bauble, I added some thread, securing with a little liquid glue at the top of the cards.
To complete the sentiments, I embossed a greeting from the Pretty Pink Posh Joy stamp set on pearl card, to match the baubles and the embossing powders used on the J and Y letters. I trimmed them down and added to the cards with foam squares to finish.
Have a lovely day,
