Today I continue my effort to get my Christmas cards all done by the end of the week. However, I got a bit sidetracked by a friend’s request to make a card for her to give with a "Welcome Home" gift. Of course, it had to be made today! But I’m all about customer service, so today it was.
This also gave me the opportunity to use the beautiful stamp set, Snow Swirled (111690), which I’ve been wanting to use with some embossing since the day it arrived on my doorstep. This card is made with two different embossing powders. The tree is embossed using VersaMark ink (102283) and Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (109029). The snowflakes in the background, both design also from the Snow Swirled set, are embossed using VersaMark and Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder (109130). So I got to fire up the Heat Tool (100005) twice! I just love it when that embossing starts to show up on the card stock!
I finished off the top of the tree with a Rhinestone Brad from the Circle Fire collection (109110). The card stock that I used for this card is Riding Hood Red and Handsome Hunter (Hmmm. Seems like I used that fairy tale combination before!) Finally, I added a bit of Brushed Gold card stock behind the Riding Hood Red.
