One More Welcome… Golden Christmas Card

Just one more Christmas card share… another one using the Welcome Christmas Stamp Set from Stampin Up… and then I’ll move on to other stamps, paper and ink! 

So.. did you check out yesterday’s post?  Hope you’ll take time to enter and win the blog candy!  Blog candy is free… and you just have to follow the directions in the post to be entered to win!  AND.. thanks to all who emailed or left sweet birthday wishes for me too!  You guys are the best!

Today’s card is an elegantly simple layered design featuring the Welcome Christmas Stamp Set showcased with Brushed Gold and Very Vanilla Cardstock… a few layers, but not too many!  I think you’re really going to like this card.. well, I hope so anyway!  I’m thinking about making it for my Christmas card this year too… well, if something else doesn’t pop into my head.. ha ha!

P7200018Brushed Gold Created By You

Both image and words were heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder.  A Powder Pal was used on the cardstock before stamping with Versamark Ink to prevent the embossing powder from sticking places other than where the Versamark Ink was stamped.

Background dry embossing was done with the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Embossing Folder, and the bow was tied using the simple childrens’ bunny ears shoelace tying technique  (form two loops or bunny ears, wrap one around the other… and then down into the bunny hole).  Everytime I tie a bow, I can hear my DH teaching the children to tie their shoe laces!!

This silhouette image looks terrific embossed in gold. A nice, simple layout to show it off.
