The new/2012 Holiday Catalogue (old mini) has a number of fantastic new items, one of those being this gorgeous Embossing Folder - Holiday Frame (127820). It is so simple, quick, versatile and effective to use.
I hope you enjoy these samples, highlighted with glimmer paper - silver (124005) or red (121790), SU Cord - Sweater Trim, available in Cherry Cobbler (129938), Gumball Green (127838) and Whisper White (129937) and the fabulous stamp sets of Joyous Celebrations (W128066 / C128069) and Greetings of the Season (W128030 / C128033).
|Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White are the colours used here and I had to use SU's Iridescent Ice 101930 (much like Dazzling Diamonds in embossing powder - now there is a winner) over the embossing.|
|Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green, Garden Green and Whisper White with more iridescent ice (101930) embossing powder.|
A close up so you can see the fine particles of the iridescent ice embossing powder. Just purrrfect...
|Love this new Sweater Trim and can you see the iridescent ice - one of my favourite products.|
Moving to some not so traditional colours but beautiful all the same, Blue and White...
|The snow flake and greeting is from the Snow Swirled stamp set (W115868 / C127799). I love blue, Marina Mist is the blue on this card coupled with Whisper White and the Silver Shimmer card stars.|
|I embossed this with iridescent ice again - you can just see it above the bow, made from SU's new 1/4" (6.4mm) Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon|
|I love this Core'rdinates paper...|
No guesses to how I've made this card - but I wiped the embossing with Daffodil Delight and then Illuminate Glimmer Pad just to see what it would do...hopefully you can see a shimmer of silver here and there...
|Daffodil Delight with Core'dination card stock embossed with the Wood Grain embossing folder.|
Last but not least, thought I'd better get festive and traditional with REAL RED... The centre is again a stamp from Every Little Bit (W121506 / C120558) , punched out with the XL oval punch (119859), and the perimeter sponged...love that Sweater Trim.
|Yes went back to more Iridescent Ice embossing...and you can see the glitter which is almost glossy|
|This time I rubbed the Real Red ink pad over the embossing, love that cord...|
Thanks for stopping by, and please watch for the next post, and enjoy your card making this wonderful festive season.
