First up was my A2 card
I used two blues to make this one. I stamped the Holiday Tapestry and embossed with some silver powder. It is a very old powder and not a fine detail one, not as smooth as I'd like. Time for some new powder methinks. I added some Express It tape in 1/8" and 1/4" and added it to card. Embossed it and love the texture it produced. I stamped the Merry Christmas onto some slightly darker blue and cut it with some of the Master Layout dies. I went with the opposites... plain inner and stitched outer. The other layers are some silver card stock. The darker blue made the base. A few silver baubles finished this card.
Card 2 - Mini Slimline
For this one, I started by stamping the border stamp from the Holiday Tapestry set and added the tape above and below. Next I used the bigger stamp above the border and the sentiment below. Messed up the sentiment embossing a bit... but hey... it's hand made! I used some gold baubles on this one. I then added the red panel directly onto my white card base.
This stamp set makes such elegant cards when embossed in the gold and silver. I can see more of these in this year's cards.
Hope you all are enjoying your weekend. Today was lovely in the afternoon, so managed a lovely walk along the pipeline between my two local beaches.
