December is upon us and we are all running around trying to get ready for the holidays. I used the Happy Little Stamper's December Mixed Media challenge to make another Christmas card.
The challenge this month is Anything Goes. I always love this challenge.
As I surf the net I see all kind of ideas. I had read somewhere how you can put embossing paste through a stencil and then add embossing powder to it while it is still wet.
This is a Hero Arts stencil. I die cut the circle out of water color paper. I laid down the stencil and added my embossing paste and added gold embossing powder over the top. I heated the embossing powder until it melt. At this point I did let it sit for awhile to make sure the paste was completely dry also. It actually has a fuzzy feel to it. I colored paper and punched out little circles and added red Stickles on top and then a layer of Glossy Accents. They were added to the wreath with glue dots to represent berries. At this point I lightly spritzed it with a gold mist. The circle was matted with red card stock.
The Joy was cut from red card stock on my Silhouette. Love that I am able to size my die cuts to fit perfectly in a space. I cut three layers and glued them together and adhered to the center of the wreath.
I made a card base out of a shade of green card stock. I put a layer of kraft paper and embossed it in an embossing folder. It was too large to fit in a folder so I did two halves. Of course, the ribbon hides the seam. I sprayed the kraft paper with gold mist also.
The circle was added to the card front with foam for some dimension. A simple bow was tied and added to the side of the card.
Here are a couple of close ups of several parts of the card.
