Christmas is coming ........




Yes I know it's only the 2nd November but .......... we have been asked to do some Christmas cards using non-traditional colours by the Less Is More Challenge Blog for week 196.

My first card uses diecuts and embossing but no stamping.  I loved the pink and blue theme where I have emphasized the embossed snowflakes with some blue dye ink (Memento).  I have edged the embossed plate with blue glitter embossing powder applied with Versamark and heat embossed with a heat gun.  The underlying diecut is made from pink pearlised card.

The word plate is gold embossed and mounted on foam pads.





My second card is entirely stamped (apart from a little bit of black paper lace) with Versafine onyx black ink.

I have kept it monochrome for simplicity.
