Just a quick post to share with you the details of our new challenge over at Holly Jolly for this week.
The theme is simple:
Can be dry embossing or heat embossing as long as it is Christmas and our challenge is sponsored by Fitztown.
I have used dry embossing and the layout of my card has been inspired by the current sketch at House of Cards.
Once more I have gone CAS in style and I have used a wonderful sentiment from the Christmas Messages stamp set. I just love the font.
The colours used are Island Indigo and Whisper White and for a bit of glitz and glam I have die cut some silver glitter paper using one of the Memory Box dies from the Peaceful Snowflake Frame Set.
The sentiment has been stamped in Island Indigo ink and then cut out using the Ovals Collection Dies and layered with dimensionals on some Crumb Cake cardstock which has the glitter frame.
The embossing folder used is the Northern Flurry folder and the paper is the retired Winter Frost Speciality DSP.
There is also little bit of Island Indigo ribbon which has been used to separate the DSP and the Whisper White Embossing cardstock.
Here is my card:
I just love how the stamp has been created to show a sort of washed out effect of the words and I love this colour it is so versatile.
Here is the sketch:
