On a mad scramble to start/finish my Christmas cards! This one came together pretty quick so will probably be making a few more of these. I began with some gunmetal Stardream cardstock I embossed some Hero Arts snowflakes on the main card with Crafty Capers Silver Dollar embossing powder. I stamped a Art Stamp (Glitter Ritz) Joy stamp with Versafine Deep Lagoon ink then embossed it with some Stampendous Stamp and Bond embossing powder. This powder turns sticky after you heat it so you can add glitter over the image. In this case, I used Mistique Glitter Ritz glitter over top of the joy word. I thought the O need some more color so I used my Quickie Glue pen and added some Fire Red Glitter Ritz "berries" . I used my new Impression Obsession snowflake to cut out a silver snowflake for an embellishment at the upper left corner of my card.
I am not happy with my vellum adhesive so will play with that a bit for the next card(s).
Thanks everyone for stopping by!
I own Crafty Capers, a rubber stamp store, located in Nanaimo BC. I started stamping after one of my sisters bought me some stamps and inks for a Christmas present about 20 years ago. I have been hooked ever since!
