Gifts of Christmas

Hi everyone,

This was a very simple Christmas card to create.  I started with cutting a piece of Shimmery White paper with a Spellbinders Labels Four #6 die.  The dove image was inked in VersaMark and embossed with gold embossing powder and a heat gun.  Using a paintbrush I applied SU's champagne mist shimmer paint to the inside of the dove.

I adhered the focal image to a piece of Decks the Halls Designer Paper then onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler.  I used quite a bit of Cherry Cobbler this year.

Before mounting everything to a solar white linen card, I added the metallic gold triple loop bow and three gold pearls.

The inside sentiment by Stampabilities was inked in VersaMark then Garden Green and embossed with clear embossing powder.  The poinsettia was embossed in gold.

I thought the flourish from the Priceless set really coordinated with the design on the front of the card so I stamped it in Cherry Cobbler with clear embossing powder.

I hope you are having a wonderful day!
