We are mixing things up this week at Merry Monday with a Tic Tac Toe Challenge. You have numerous options available to help you get started on your next Christmas Card. I decided to go with the top row, Red, Dry Embossing and Ribbon.
I have seen some awesome cards in blogland with the Holiday Frame Embossing Folder. I only recently added it to my collection. This folder does much of the work for you when it comes to creating elegant Christmas cards. I embossed my white cardstock with the folder and then sponged on Create-A-Shade Pearl Paint to highlight the embossing. I stamped my ornament in Tulip ink, then stamped again with VersaMark ink and added Iridescent Embossing powder for a little shimmer.
I finished out the inside with a little more dry embossing and highlighted again with the Create-A-Shade paint. When you are applying thin layers of the paint, it drys super quick.
