Hi all. This card features a Chocoloate Baroque stamp set of two circular designs, one with candles and foliage and this sweet little robin sitting in the holly. I also used a Crafter's Companion Embossing Folder called Entwined Holly. It is the 25th of the month and so time for Mo's Rudolph Days Challenge which runs until the end of the month, and a great opportunity to get some cards made every month. I will try and do better this year than I did last!
I started with a piece of blue card just under 6" square and embossed the Entwined Holly on to it, doing it twice to cover the square piece of card. I then highlighted the pattern with some silver gilding wax, very lightly but just enough to bring out the pattern. I then adhered this to the white base card.
I then die cut a circle using a stitched die from The Works and stamped the robin using Versamark and heat embossed using WOW Silver Metallic Embossing Powder. I then cut another slightly larger stitched circle from a darker blue and matted it to the stamped topper. I finished the card with a sentiment also stamped and heat embossed with the Silver Metallic EP on to the darker blue card and cut it into this angled shape and added it to the card as you can see.
The gilding is very shiny in real life but is difficult to see but I think you can just make out a bit of it on the raised pattern.
Thank you for your visit today and I'll see you again soon.
I am also entering the following challenges:
