Here's today's Christmas card!
I ran a piece of white card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Wild Poinsettia Embossing Folder. The sandwich you need for this is base plate, folder with card inside, tan mat, Creative Expressions Embossing Plate. I popped it through a second time to extend the pattern I inked all over the background with Broken China Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.
I cut the largest of the Spellbinders 2010 Heirloom Ornament dies out of white card and inked through the die around the edges with Broken China. I cut all the snowflakes out of the Spellbinders Create-A-Flake Three using cobalt, deep blue and white card. I inked through the white one with Broken China. I layered all the snowflakes up with 3D foam and popped them onto the bauble. I cut a piece of white silky crush ribbon in half length-ways and tied a bow. I tied a bow of Baker's Twine out of the Vintage Set and popped that on top. Then I added a Creative Expressions Medium Circle Dazzler.
I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Winter Trees stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using one of the Spellbinders Holiday Tags die set. I inked through the die with Broken China and added a Baker's Twine bow.
I finished the card with some Creative Expressions Self-Adhesive Pearl Swirls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in white.
