Merry Christmas

Hi Stampers!

I created this card using the gorgeous inspiration photo from the Pals Paper Arts PPA68 Challenge (see  for more details and the wonderful samples created by the Design Team and the other submissions. 

To create this card:

Using the Big Shot and the Vintage Wallpaper EF, emboss a piece of Perfect Plum and Whisper White.

Using a Sponge Dauber, lightly sponge Rich Razzleberry over the raised part of the embossed area on the Perfect Plum cardstock.  Gently rub a Versamark Pad over the raised portions that were just sponged and heat emboss using Gold Embossing Powder.

On another piece of Whisper White cardstock, de-static the paper with the Embossing Buddy and stamp the large medallion image from Day of Gratitude using Versamark ink.  Heat emboss with Gold EP and cut out around the image. 

Cut the Perfect Plum embossed panel and the Whisper White embossed panel and attach together in the center.  Wrap a piece of 5/8” Rich Razzleberry Satin Ribbon to cover the seam. 

Attach the medallion using dimensionals.  Stamp the sentiment, trim and adhere just slightly under the ribbon.  Finish off the card with pearls and mount onto a layer of Rich Razzleberry.

Stamp Sets:  Day of Gratitude, Christmas Greetings
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Perfect Plum, Rich Razzleberry
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Versamark
Accessories: Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper EF, Embossing Buddy, Gold EP, Heat Gun, 5/8” Rich Razzleberry Ribbon , Pearls

Thanks again for taking the time to visit me- God Bless!
