Christmas Wishes

I was inspired to make this card this week after seeing a project done by Ingrid Blackburn. She used a holly stencil and made several beautiful cards with it. I decided to use a holly stencil  as well and used silver embossing paste for my background. I then cut the piece into thirds to apply to my Stampin’ Up! Real Red card stock. I placed the 3 pieces on my Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Cardstock. I then decided to cut a tag to add my Santa (DSP Stampin’ Up!). Before adding him I used a piece of silver cording to add some depth to him. Lastly, I added my Christmas Wishes (Stampin’ Up! Ornamental Pine Stamp Set) Sentiment.

If you’ve never tried using Embossing paste, I suggest you do so. It’s so much fun!!!  and Beautiful when completed.

  3. Very festive card. You used the entire festive color palette. Beautiful card. I love this bulging effect after using the paste embossing. I have to admit you’re right, this stencil is really great.
