I had so much fun with this week's Create with Connie and Mary Challenge #CCMC435.
I wanted to use the sweet little angel from the Wonder of Christmas stamp set and lots of gold! I am so happy that Stampin;' Up! has such a great selection of gold items. I used a lot but there are still some that I couldn't fit on the card.
First, I cut the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes framelits. I used VersaMark ink to stamp the angel and used a special mix of Gold embossing powder and Gold Glitter. I make this glitter and embossing powder mix up starting with a 1:1 ratio. I thought about coloring her but decided to keep it simple and just embrace the gold and white color scheme.
This side view show the glittery embossing a little better. I used a strip of Gold Glimmer paper topped with the 1/8" Gold Ribbon. I also used Gold Foil paper and the polka dot design from the Fabulous Foil Acetate. All of this was layered on to one of the great embossed designs from the Fancy Frost Specialty DSP. I did use the Thick Whisper White card stock for the card base.
Be sure to check out what the rest of the Create with Connie and Mary Design team created with the sketch. I hope you will be inspired to join in the challenge!
