There are pops of red in some of the Christmas catalogues appearing on the high street too.....Only 40 days left until the big day!
Visible Image stamps and decided to use a pop of red in my latest card design. Did you know that Visible Image ship worldwide? They are also able to ship immediately on ordering as they are no longer manufacturing their stamps in house. In the UK that often means next day delivery.
I like to make small batches of Christmas cards and this design has already been popular with my friends.
Here is what I got up to. ..
I took some black card and randomly stamped their enchanting snowflakes. This set of snowflakes makes for some brilliant backgrounds. I used Picket Fence distress ink for a subtle effect.
After drying with my heat gun I stamped the Smile, sparkle shine set with Versamark and added sparkle glitter embossing powder.
I then stamped "Merry Christmas and a happy new year" from their brilliant Go to Christmas words set
Here it is pre heating
and then post heating....a great shine!
Once I had made my 4 card fronts
I matted them onto red card before attaching them to white card blanks. I added a little red gem star as an extra pop of red.
Here is my finished card
In real life the sentiment has such a sparkle with the glittered embossing powder but I found it impossible to get my camera to show it off!
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges.
