Countdown to Christmas ~ Week 2

Hello again,

I have another Christmas project to share with you this week and it's another card and another simple one, just with quite a few steps.

First I stamped the images, then punched them out using the "Ornament" punch, then adhered them to the "Cherry Cobbler" cardstock then stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink, added white embossing powder and applied heat.  I then put it into the "Vintage Wallpaper" embossing folder and run it through the "Big Shot".  This technique is called Emboss Embed, when you look at the card it looks like the image is actually part of the cardstock as though it was printed on.
Then I glued the silver cord on, tied little bows and attached to the images then matted onto "Very Vanilla" cardstock then attached that with "Dimensionals" to the "Old Olive" card blank.  Then of course, spritzed it with "Champagne Mist" glimmer paint mix in Surgical Spirit, to make it all shimmery - so cute.

Even though there are quite a few steps,  once you get a little production line going, doing each stage one at a time for multiply cards, you can get quite a few done in a relatively short amount of time.  The thing that took the longest time was tying all those little bows, not easy for me as I have big fingers, but so worth it.

Hope you like it, sorry it doesn't look that shimmery in the photo but it really is so sparkly IRL.

Have a great weekend .... xx
