Holly Jolly

Good Morning.
Do you need some ideas for simple cardmaking as the big day gets closer.
This card fits that bill.

I used the Embossing Folders inking technique to do the background.  
Rub a water based ink onto your embossing folder, spritz with water and press your paper into the wet ink and remove.  The Peacock Feather DOX gave such a lovely impression.
When that was dry, I played the piece into my Misti and stamped the sentiment from MFT.
Added the SSS die-cut snowflake and popped up the center for interest and added drops of Nuvo to finish off my card.


Wishing you a happy day as you get ready for the holidays.
Thanks so much for the visit.

I had to sit right down and try this before I commented, Karen. I've done it before but not with Oxides and wanted to see how it would come out. Your snowflakes look lovely with Peacock Feathers and I love the addition of the larger die cut one.

This ink on embossing folder technique had worked well using this pretty snowflake design Karen, and the Peacock Feathers oxide ink is such a intense and pretty blue, also I adore the large die cut snowflake over the top and the Nuvo drop in the centre is the perfect match. I love the black sentiment which stands out beautiifully too. x
