Merry Christmas

Christmas is only a few days away and it's time to finish up Christmas card. I've had this stamp for quite awhile, but could never get the stamped image to look quite right. But, I was able to finally get the look I wanted with Colorbox's Petal Point Celebration Inks and Scentz Snickerdoodle Embossing Powder.

Cut cardstock to fit card front.
Cut 2 pieces of Graphic45 pattern paper to fit front.
Punch edge of one with Fiskars punch.
Ink stamp with 3 stamp colors, being careful not to overlap too much.
Spritz the stamp with water and stamp on white cardstock.
Add Scentz Snickerdoodle Embossing Powder and heat set.
Die cut into a circle and ink edges with gold.
Mat with brown cardstock die cut into a scalloped circle.
Stamp sentiment in gold ink and emboss with Scentz Snickerdoodle Embossing Powder.
Add to card front.

I love that the Snickerdoodle Embossing Powder did not overpower the ink colors. It allowed the colors to show through while providing a nice metallic effect.
