Christmas Sparkle


Well I'm not quite sure how to describe this card.  It fell together out of having a play with my new embossing folder - Vintage Wallpaper.

It's such a rich deep embossing folder I decided to use a rich deep colour with it - Cherry Cobbler.  Using my Colour Coach I matted it onto Night of Navy after corner rounding and using Dimensionals to pop it up.  The sparkle comes from dabbing Frost White Shimmer Paint onto part of the raised pattern.  A Basic Rhinestone in the centre finishes it off.  The panel is attached to a Whisper White card base.  I decided it looked Christmassy so added Holiday Greetings from Sincere Salutations in Night of Navy.

This follows the sketch on Less is More


This is a great sketch to play along with so join in the fun! 

A big welcome to Cindy, hope to see you often. x

It's lovely and who would have thought it would end up as a Christmas card - but it is perfect. Love the little rhinestone in the centre.
