Happy Little Stampers - July Christmas Challenge

This is my second post for today and it's one I'm really thrilled to be sharing as it's my first gig as a DT member at Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge. How amazingly cool is that!

And here's my debut card:


Every time I make a card using mirri card I tell myself never to do it again! And why is that? Yes you've probably guessed -  it's just so difficult to photograph without getting myself or my camera reflected in it.


The sentiment and the bacground splatters are both stamped and heat embossed in gold onto black cardstock. Both the quote layer and the golden square are die cut and then inlaid back innto the card to keep a smooth postal friendly surface - also because, as you know, I'm a bit hooked on inlaying dies.

Supplies:
Stamps: Kaisercraft, Magic of Christmas
Ink:Versamark
Embossing: Personal Impressions, mirror gold
Die: Lawn Fawn, large stitched square stackables
Mirri card from my stash

I'm hugely thankful for your visit today at the beginning of this new adventure for me - boy has it been tough keeping this one under wraps for the last few weeks! Do be sure to visit Happy Little Stampers and check out all the golden gorgeousness from the rest of the DT and then I'll look forward to seeing your own golden beauties.

And remember - keep crafting!

  7. Yes, I agree - it is so hard to photograph cards with mirri card on them!! But I can still see how gorgeous your card is! Love the sentiment you used and the way the gold splatters tie everything together. Welcome to the HLS Christmas team - it will be fun to be on the team with you!
