Christmas and Birthday card Challenge

This weeks challenge on Just Christmas and Birthday cards. The challenge is a sketch by Amanda, so I used my stamps from the stampin up set City of David, embossed the picture and the sentiment in gold, I used Whisper pen to colour the picture, layered both with orange card and made a flower with orange and brown card using my Provacraft die cuts, used a bit of gold Stickles on the flower, there is also some in the centre of the flower which doesnt show in the photograph, and added gold ribbon.

Thank you for looking ..... Jose

  9. Jose, such a pretty card! Your image is so clear--I sometimes have trouble with embossing as I end up with little dots on my paper, no matter how hard I try to make is cleaned off before applying the heat.

    ...and the best thing, you have a head start on your Christmas cards in eleven months!!
