Hello my friends!
I'm so excited to have you stop by today! I have a card to share with you, as a guest, over on the jingle belles blog. Lauren and Stephanie make amazing holiday cards each week, so I was thrilled to be joining them for the next two weeks. I'm sure you know by now, how much I enjoy making holiday cards as well, so this was a win/win for me. This challenge is one of my favorites too, embossing. Here is the card I made.
I wanted to keep things simple, so that the focus would be on the embossing. I included both wet and dry embossing on my card, as I love both. I wanted a pink poinsettia, and think it turned out pretty well. I used the colors from Color Throwdown #331, as they really struck me as being beautiful, and played into my love of non-traditional Christmas cards. I added some leaves, and a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins, and was done. I like the simplicity of this card, with the embossing and the sentiment as the main focus. I'm going to submit this card for the following challenges.
Virginia's View Challenge: Embossing
The Card Concept #30: Photo Inspiration
ODBDSLC230: Sketch (my loose interpretation)
Stephanie and Lauren have created two beautiful cards for your viewing pleasure, and I do hope you'll head over to check them out. Maybe you'll get the chance to play along and slowly build your holiday card stash in the process? :-)
Have a wonderful day!
