A Doubly Embossed Christmas Card

The card I’ve chosen for today is a simple Christmas card. I can tell you how I THINK I made it, because I did the main embossed part last year and found it in my “card parts” pile.

The image was embossed using a Lasting Impressions brass stencil. I’m pretty sure I must have left the stencil in place, and then covered the embossing with Versamark ink. I then used Stampendous Winter Wonderland embossing powder and heat embossed it. (I wish you could see the silver sparkle on it.) It’s cut out with a square scalloped Marvy punch, mounted on shimmery silver paper, and then onto red cardstock. I used the Scor-Pal on the red, also. The background is embossed with a Cuttlebug Snowflakes folder. The Merry Christmas is from the retired Stampin’ Up! set Greetings 4 You, and I used the Scor-Pal again on both sides of the greeting.

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!

Beautiful card, lots of texture and the extra score lines are perfect the way they set off the image and the text. A very elegant card!

This is yet another beauty! I admire you for actually being able to use something from your "card parts" pile -- I have so much of that stuff around, but I never seem to be able to find a way to use it!

Great card! I'm looking forward to being able to use my CB snowflake folder (but not the weather that goes with it). That is such a cute stencil and so pretty done in all white.
