Here's today's card -
Newsprint Holly A6 Background onto Milk Card using Bottle Adirondack Dye Ink. I made sure the ink was dry and ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Poinsettia Lullaby Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Bottle Ink.
Merry Christmas Stamp using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I stamped it a second time in the same way. I cut out the Merry panel, the poinsettias panel and the single poinsettia. I coloured in using mica powders from the Cosmic Shimmer Festive Brights Set. I used Christmas Red, Bright Holly and Soft Gold. I cut the main image out using Spellbinders Adorning Squares and inked through the die with Bottle Adirondack. I edged the cut out panels with a little of the Bottle Adirondack.
Green/Ivory Striped Grosgrain Ribbon around the right hand side of my background. I tied a bow and added a Bronze Vintage Button.
