Christmas Cards 2017-apr-24

Happy Monday,

It's time to play and to add to my Christmas card stash.  I make two cards today.

First up, gold heat embossed Hero Arts Stunning Snowflakes on kraft CS, die cut and layered over card base stamped with Winnie & Walter's Let It Snow using Hero Arts Ombre Vintage Metallic ink.  The gold embossed snowflake on kraft does not stand out so I thought I'd add color to make embossing popped, but it didn't.  So I die cut the center out and use vellum for the sentiment placeed behind the opening.

Next, a shaped card, basic white heat embossed Hero Arts Stunning Snowflakes on kraft and die cut.  But I need a way to add a sentiment, so I used the cut out from my first card and layered it on top.  I used a white gel pen to add some dots to add interests.

Here's a look of both together.

Two fabulous cards, Cindy! I love your ink blending with gold embossing on the first one, and that you chose white on Kraft for the 2nd card is perfect! Two great additions to your Christmas card stash :)
