Sleigh Bells

It's Merry Monday and that means it's time for another Christmas card challenge.  This week Bonnie is our hostess and she is challenging us to use wet or dry embossing on our cards.


I went with some heat embossing and came up with this card, that also uses the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch.


I white embossed the Santa's sleigh image onto a white card base then carefully sponged Tumbled Glass ink over the top.  I sponged some Broken China ink inside the circle and at the top of the houses and tree to define them a bit more.

The sentiment comes from Winter Wonderland by Mama Elephant and worked well with the image.  I finished off with some Moonshine sequins from SSS.

Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to check out the amazing creations by the rest of the design team.


Products used:

Stamps:  Holiday Silhouette (Inkadinkado), Winter Wonderland (Mama Elephant)
Ink:  Versamark, Archival Black, Tumbled Glass, Broken China
Cardstock:  White
Accessories:  Sequins, White EP

Cheers
Karren
