Hope you are having a great weekend. I have been working on some Christmas cards this week. I wanted to share one of them with you today. I used the background technique again I used with the Tea Cup Card recently. It is a double stamped-double embossed kind of thing. I haven't thought of a good name for it yet. LOL Here is the card.
Stamps: D6905 Hanging Tree Bulb and CC057 Cover a Card Vines both from Impression Obsession. I stamped the Cover a Card Vines stamp with pigment ink twice on white CS. Each time using a different color. Then heat embossed with clear powder. This was then sprayed with Gold Glimmer Mist (Tattered Angles). The Hanging Tree Bulb was stamped with Onyx Black Versa-fine on yellow CS (The paper Company) and heat embossed. I stamped a second bulb for layering. The yellow CS was painted with Champagne Mist shimmer ink (Tsukineko) and layered with wine CS (Bazzill). The second bulb was cut out and layered on to the first. The snow was decorated with Diamond Stickles.
I added more sparkle with Gold Stickles and more of the Champagne Mist on the edges of the card base. I placed a gingham ribbon tied in a bow with pleated tails at the corner of the bulb piece. I cut a white ribbon that was printed with Seasons Greetings and glued over the gingham ribbon.. The photos don't do the sparkle justice. It is very shimmery.

How are you doing with your Christmas cards? I did get quite a few done this week. And, I have about twenty in the works. I stamped and stamped snowflakes. Some are embossed and some aren't. Now, I will just go from there to finish up the cards. Well, you have a great day! Love ya.
