I had so much fun making these cards. I really enjoyed playing with the colours. I used my new MFP's "'Tis the Season" set. I first stamped the bauble in Versamark and then in the light colour all over. Secondly I then used the rock and roll technique and inked only the edges of the image in the darker colour. Finally I used sparkle embossing powder and heat embossed the entire image. The sparkles here are chunkier and darker than the powder I used last week and shows more as a glitter than as a shine. I like both actually. Once the bauble was completed, I then fussy cut around it and set it aside.
I stamped the sentiment using my Christmas Cardinal set and dry embossed the image on a precut panel. To this I added my bauble and assembled my card. I was a little embarrased to realize I did the entire set out of scraps.
