Hello and thank you so much for visiting me, I really appreciate it! A Christmas card today.
I began with the gorgeous leafy stencil from Clarity Stamp which isn't actually a Christmas stencil but with the Dreamweaver Glossy Green embossing paste sprinkled with glitter, its really sparkly in real life, I think it looks the part. I have not used the embossing paste before even though it is 8 or 9 years old - I was not sure it would still work! It was perfect. I have a red pot I haven't opened either so I must use that too. It is the first time I have used the stencil too so two NBUS on this card! I used a punch for the red circle then Spellbinders standard circles set of of dies (using my Big Shot) to cut out the Justright Festive Poinsettia stamp set sentiment which I stamped in Satin Red Versafine and embossed with clear powder. The Christmas Bow is a Die'sire by Crafters Companion die (again cut using my Big Shot) and I gave it two coats of Spectrum Noir clear Sparkle Pen. The green stones are from my stash - this is quite a large card, the green base card is 7 x 7 inches.
