Happy Holidays

Hi friends,

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I read comments that you leave for me and feel so happy that my modest cards are getting attention of really cool & talented crafters!  Thank you again!

Today I'm sharing a card that I made for JustRite challenge Happy Holidays, where we were challenged to use at least 2 die cut elements on our Holiday projects. For my card I used Twisted Metal Tags and Accents and one of the smaller templates from Resplendent Rectangles set. For sentiment I used JustRite's Large Fancy Holiday Sentiments and for the background I used Lace Background stamp. Both images were heat embossed: the sentiment was stamped with royal blue ink (Colourbox), then embossed with some sparkly clear embossing powder, and the background was stamped with moon white ink, then embossed with sparkly white embossing powder. The effect of sparkling embossing powders is oh, so cool!; the sentiment looks like it's made of ice, and the background looks like fresh snow on a sunny winter day. I think this will be a Christmas card for myself - I just love it :-)  Thanks for your visit!
