When I saw this Freshly Made Sketch I thought of Close to My Heart's Noel Holiday stamp set.
The card actually came together pretty quickly, even with all the embossing. I am really loving the Ranger embossing powders! They are finely ground, so they show more detail. Unfortunately, no matter how I light it, when photographing a white and gold card I can never get the shine to show without the highlights blasting out that detail.
To keep with the vintage feel of the stamp set I used a cropped text box cut using the Artbooking Cricut cartridge (page 81) in place of the banner. The embossing and metallic paper provides enough sparkle and interest so I opted not to use any embellishments.
Another Christmas card down. I don't want to think about how many more I need to make... Thank you for stopping by! Now why don't you head over to Freshly Made Sketches for some inspiration and perhaps enter the challenge yourself? I would love to see your work. You have until Monday December 7th at 12:00 PST to enter. Until next time, Hansi
