Couldn't resist making one more CAS Christmas card for this week's Merry Monday Challenge (#147 - Stars!).
And I'm going to add this to the new ATS&M Challenge #133 - Holiday and Rudolph Days - February 2015. Perfect timing!! :)
The Phrases tree is cut with my Silhouette Cameo from white card stock. I then coated it with Inka Gold Beeswax paste. In hindsight, I could have cut it from gold foil ... or sprayed it with gold paint --- it would have been easier. But I still had fun playing with the beeswax. Still experimenting on what surface is best. Definitely wood is a good choice. And I have used it through a stencil on card stock too. But for the intricate cut of this image, it's not the best.
Anyways, the background is heat embossed. I used a scrunched up piece of cling wrap, pounced some versamark clear ink on my craft mat and spritzed just a little water, and then pounced it randomly onto my card front. Then I heat embossed with gold glitter embossing powder. Love the look! :)
This card also works well for the Happy Little Stampers February CAS Challenge - Embossing. I have been obsessed making embossed card this month! :) There's less than two days left to play before it closes.
