Joy to the World - Christmas 2023

Hello everyone. I'm back with another Christmas card. I created this background by inking up my embossing folder before inserting the cardstock and running it through my die cuting machine. After adhering the panel to a white card base, I added this heat-embossed sentiment strip and a die cut snowflake (both from my UFO box) and finished off with a few shimmery gold embellishments.

More stencilling - Christmas 2023

I created two more cards using the stencilled panels I had created last year. For these, I used the ink that was left on my blending brushes after stencilling each of the panels from my previous post for a softer look.

To add a little more contrast and interest, I cut down the panels and added a mat of black cardstock. I did the same thing with my black and dark grey sentiments.

Easy stencilling - Christmas 2023

Hello everyone. I'm racing to get this post up before getting to work, since Beccy has announced another race. I was sleeping through the last one. But this time I'm ready!

I created these panels last year as I was visiting my sister (who owns this SSS layering stencil). I finished the card off with 2 stamped and die-cut sentiments (SSS)  from my UFO box and added some gold/silver thread behind the gold/silver embossed sentiment.
