Embossed Holidays

Hi and welcome!  I'm back with my card for Camp Create's Background Bonanza and I've made a Christmas card using a few small stamps from a couple of MFT sets.  I've also loosely used the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch and I'm linking up to Cardz for Guyz who have a Christmas in July theme.

 I white embossed small images from Santa's Elves and Hand Lettered Holidays onto some Kraft cardstock.  I then outlined most of the images using a C1 Copic marker to make them stand out a bit more.  The panel was cut with a Blueprints 29 die.  A big sentiment was stamped with Archival Black ink onto a strip of vellum and adhered to the kraft panel which was then stuck to a white card base using foam tape.  I finished the card with a few clear sequins, which I hope aren't too girly :)

Thanks for visiting.

Oh, those are such cute images, Karren - love how you've outlined them to stand out beautifully!!!!! The sentiment stamp has such a lovely font and I love it on the vellum strip!!!! The sequins add a lovely bit of sparkle and I don't think they're too girly!!! Even though you haven't used bright colours you card has got a lovely festive feel with the sweet little images and all the little stars!!!!
Have a great day!!!
