Stampendous and Christmas

Today I am sharing a card I made for Christmas - last week Simon Says Stamp had a challenge to use paint - well I had so much fun - I had to try something else with paint - it is kinda a new remembered technique to use.  I am entering it in their challenge - to use a favorite technique.

I made the background for the Believe with two shades of acrylic paint and white acrylic paint.  The believe was stamped with Versa Mark and heat embossed with the Hero Arts white embossing powder - I really liked that powder.  The card was suppose to be horizontal card but I did not like it.  It was also suppose to have silver cord wound around it and a big bow.  Those ideas did not fly.  And then would you believe I had no big white ribbon.  The navy matches the painted watercolor paper - it was dry embossed with a Sizzix folder.  The Believe panel is pop dotted on the front of the card.

I am also entering this card in the Stampendous monthly challenge for making the sentiment the focus of your card.  I believe I did that.

Have a wonderful evening.
