Elegant Stamped Christmas

For several years, I have enjoyed my small business, CLOcards - creating special event stationery for weddings, graduations, company outtings, etc.  One of my favorite commissions was creating a Christmas thank-you card for the president of the college where I work.

I made this card larger than normal, working with a full sheet of cardstock and folding to a size of 8.5" x 5.5".  I incorporated several layers, ribbon, sponging, texture embossing and lots of glitz in the form of Iridescent Ice embossing powder, rhinestones, and DazzlingDetails glitter glue.  You can see a bit of the shine in this close-up:

After embossing the tree with Iridescent Ice, I sponged the Elegant Eggplant ink in and around the image until I got the look I wanted.  Be sure to leave me a comment if you have any questions!
