This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is to create an over the top Christmas card. Inspired by a project I saw in the November Stampin’ SUCCESS magazine I created this over the top pewter gilded frame Christmas Card.
The embossed snowflake background is heat embossed with Iridescent Embossing Powder.
The frame is die cut using Sizzix Frame die. I used the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and inked up the inside of the embossing folder with Versamark then ran it through the Big Shot. I then heat embossed it with Pewter Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I love how the frame looks antiqued!
I used the Blossom Petals Builder punch to make the white poinsettia. I used the three narrow petals to create the layers then used the Simply Scored to score the petals then adhered them to a 1″ circle with glue dots. For some extra sparkle I applied Versamark and heat embossed with Iridescent Embossing Powder. For more shine I used basic rhinestones for the center of the poinsettia. The Blossom Petals Builder punch made it so easy! The sentiment is stamped and heat embossed with Iridescent Embossing Powder on a 3/4″ strip of Whisper White card stock.
More basic rhinestones were added to the frame and background to send this card over the top with sparkle.
I hope you’re inspired to join us this week. For more over the top inspiration go to Hand Stamped Sentiments and see what our design team has created for this week.
