Merry Monday Guest Designer
Hi everyone. Sharing another scheduled post with you today.
I'm so excited to be Guest Designer at Merry Monday! :) It's one of my favourite challenges and helps to keep my stash of Christmas cards growing all year long.
The challenge this week is ...
I was inspired to use this layout after seeing this AMAZING CARD by my friend Nonni! Thank you for the inspiration Nonni!! :) I LOVE this CAS design.
For my card above, the background is done with the rubber band embossing technique. Simply wrap elastic bands around a brayer, ink up with versamark and roll over your card stock. I used black card stock for my background, rolling in both directions so I have cross over lines. Then I heat embossed with Gold Tinsel embossing powder from Ranger. I also used the same embossing powder for the sentiment, stamping first in black and then heat embossing over top with Gold Tinsel EP. I love how it gives the sentiment a two tone look. A two-layer die-cut poinsettia in gold foil paper was added (shaped for more dimension), along with some gold seed beads added with glossy accents to the center.
Quick, easy and fun card to make. Make sure to check out the Merry Monday Challenge #212 - Gold Black and White to see the cards from the very talented design team. And come play along! It's never too early to start making Christmas cards.
Thanks for stopping by!
