Merry & Bright Christmas

Hello everyone!! I'm back to share a Christmas card that I made this week. I'm really loving this gold embossing on vellum. It gives a very elegant look to the card. Have a look here:

I stamped the Poinsettia image from Joanna Sheen's Make A Wish stamp set on vellum and heat embossed it wit Hero Arts gold powder. I colored it on the back with my water-based markers.

I then stamped the sentiment from Sweet n Sassy Stamps' Christmas Penguins Clear Stamp Set and heat embossed it with gold powder.

I then mounted the vellum on ivory card base. I really love the look of the ivory background!!

Lesson learnt: Be very careful when using liquid adhesive on the colored side of the image :) I had a small accident and spoiled 1 card base :)

How can I not mention what started me on this gold on vellum phase!! I was inspired by Virginia Lu's card which was selected for this month's CASEploration Challenge in the STAMPlorations blog.

A bit of news - we are moving to NJ this weekend. I have made a few more cards before packing up my craft stuff which I'll be sharing soon. I might be packing/unpacking for a few days/week. Once I get settled, I will be back in my new craft space (I guess I'll get a small space with a table). Till then, I might be on and off. I'll be visiting your blogs in the mean time :)

Do let me know your thoughts and suggestions. Thanks for stopping by.
