Christmas card for my Son using freebies!
I received a wonderful gift when I subscribed to 'Simply Cards and Papercrafts' last month; a set if Indigo Blue Flitter and some beautiful stamps and on top of that the magazine had a great embossing strip folder. So that's what I used to make both my Son and Daughters Christmas cards.
Here's the one for my boy:
I layered textured gold card on a plain 8x8inch white card. Stamped the Indigo Blue image and embossed with silver embossing powder onto black card. Sprinkled a frame around the image with Frantage Aged Gold Opaque embossing enamel and heated it from underneath. I then ran some brown paper through the Bigshot inside the freebie embossing folder and went over it with the lush Pebeo Silver Gilding Wax, stuck on a couple of gold stars, the die cut letters out of a velvet wallpaper sample (!) from the Time Holtz Vintage Market strip and voila!
It had to be a quick card as my son really isn't into cards at all - I've put him off for life with all my crafting!
