I know, I know it is only July, but I have been working on my Christmas cards stash. Sparkle and shimmer is always a great element to use on Christmas cards.
For this first one I die cut some gold foil card stock with Hero Arts Holiday Greenery Edge Fancy Die to decorate the ornament. To make less matchy matchy I heat embossed the greeting with Brass embossing powder. On the hot pink card base I splattered some white acrylic paint.
Since I got everything out already, why not make more? 🙂 I used the same design, just swap the gold foil card stock with metallic dark blue card stock, and gold heat emboss the greeting instead. On the white card base, I splattered Glimmer Metallic Gold Ink.
I also coated the die cut bow with Clear Wink of Stella.
