Whilst checking out Pinterest recently, I came across a great technique to emboss in gold on Brushed Gold card stock, and then colour the image with markers. I knew it would work perfectly for Christmas cards.
The retired Watercolor Winter images were used for the focal points. The first card features the poinsettias which have been coloured with Cherry Cobbler and Pink Pirouette markers. The panel was layered onto Basic Black and then onto a base card of Cherry Cobble which was embossed with the Petals-a-Plenty TIEF. The sentiment from the retired Perfect Punches was stamped in Cherry Cobbler on Whisper White, then punched with the 1-3/4″ Scallop Circle Punch and added to the card with dimensionals.
The second panel features the holly and berries and was coloured with Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler markers, then layered on Old Olive. The corner of the Soft Suede base was embossed with the Northern Flurry TIEF, and a sentiment from Greetings of the Season was added with Soft Suede.
Which one do you prefer? Please leave me a comment and let me know. Thanks to Katie for the inspiration.
