Making Christmas Cards for Sundays with Santa


Last weeks Challenge over on Sundays with Santa on Facebook was all about using sentiments as the main topper, and I thought I would give these two Heartfelt stamps a airing and created two cards with them.
I have stamped both of the sentiment stamps onto white card with Versamark ink pad and then scattered on gold embossing powder before using my heat gun to emboss it. I then used my copic pens to colour the leaves and the scene in the P on the top one, afterwards I used for the first one Nestabilitie Labels Die No.28 its a decorative one, and for the second is a Grand circle die. I also cut out two mounts with the top one by drawing around one of the Labels 28 die and cutting it out by hand, and for the second one I used a large circle die both of them have been cut out of red card.
The base cards are A5 cards and then for the first mount is a piece of red card, on top are a A4 pearlescent card cut in halve but before doing so I have run it through the Ebosser with a holly embossing folder.
Then around the middle I have used two ribbons and attached the to the back of the red mount before placing them both on white cards.
These Cards are to be entered in the following Challenges:-
