Welcome, to day 12 of the The Twelve Days of Christmas for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. There is still a little bit of time to enter the Blog Candy and the details will be listed below. If you would like to check out all of the beautiful cards for The Twelve Days of Christmas you can click HERE to visit The Stamp Simply Blog.
Here is the Christmas cards I designed.
This card is a wonderful combination of metallic copper and gold with some cream.
To create the background piece I used the Darice Embossing Folder - Pine Branches in Corner and inked the embossing folder with Delicata Celestial Copper ink. I used a heavier hand when inking the top and bottom of the embossing folder so the middle of the folder had very little ink. The Delicata inks are great to use for this technique because they leave a very soft shimmer and don't tend to leave harsh lines. Then I carefully added my cardstock and ran the embossing folder through the die cutting machine. As you can see from the photo doing this technique leaves the flatter areas with ink and the embossed areas are still the cream colored cardstock.
Here is a close up of the top part of the card.
Here you can see the middle and bottom of the card. I used one of the stamps from the Stamp Simply Clear Stamps - SS-013 Jesus stamp set. I used Delicata Celestial Copper ink and Ranger - Copper Supper Fine Detail Embossing Powder to stamp and emboss the sentiment. Then I went over the word Savior with a Zig Wink of Stella Gold pen and I also added some splatter droplets on the paper using the Wink of Stella pen. Next I added some Glossy Accents on top of the word Savior for some added dimension.
To finish off the card I added some May Arts Metallic Wired Iridescent Cord - Copper around the bottom half of the card and I curled the ends. I also added a few Melissa Frances Cream Pearls. I layered the background piece on to a piece of Bazzill Luxury Pearlescent Metallic 105# Copper and then added that to an A2 top folding cream card base.
As I mentioned above there is still some time to get your name in
