My 2nd Christmas card!!.....


Follow on Bloglovin 

 Well I am so pleased with myself I've just made my 2nd Christmas card...the sun is shining and its warm and I just cant get to grips with the 'C' word at the moment..

I've been playing around with masks and embossing them...this one is a Touch Mask called 'Flourishing Heart'.. using Versamark ink pad I patted my mask all over before popping into the Bigshot and embossing it....then I sprinkled clear embossing powder over it and embossed it.  
Using SU old olive ink pad I coloured the mask all over and of course the embossed bits resisted the ink.
Dies have used are Sue Wilsons Holly Flourish. Spellbinder Poinsettia (using vellum rather than card and adding glitter), Dainty Dots embosing folder and the sentiment is from Stampin Up 'Greetings of the Season' set...
