Christmas Blessings


Today's card came together very quickly, a good thing at this time of year when the final push is on for the holidays.
I used another one of my roll-off sheets I had done when I was Gel Plate printing.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • Like I mentioned above, this card started with a piece of cardstock that I had rolled excess paint off of when I was Gel Plate printing.  I save all the 'roll offs' to make simple backgrounds.
  • I placed the panel into the Tim Holtz Poinsettia embossing folder and ran it through my machine.
  • Next, I got out my sanding block and sanded off all the raised areas to reveal the flowers.  
  • I glued it onto a piece of white cardstock.  I also glued a piece of cardboard behind so when I glued it to my A2 card base, it would be raised.
  • I added the pre-printed sentiment and 2 gems on either side.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

This 3D embossing is beautiful Karen and I love the way you have sanded it back to emphasise the flowers..shows the worth of keeping bits of scrap to use. x
