I just LOVE red and white for Christmas cards...there's just something very CAS about that color combination! I have a twofer for you today using a PB stamp (Ornately) that I've had for a billion years (or close!) and have never used. I embossed the image first in WOW Metallic Red and decided I didn't like it because it looked a little pink to me, so re-stamped another one using Real Red ink. After I finished the card, the embossed Metallic Red piece sat there staring at me, so I decided to finish it into a card and ended up liking it better than the other. Here's the embossed WOW Metallic Red one:
I matted the card with Real Red cs and then the embossing didn't look so pink anymore. I also added a layer of dry embossing using SU!'s Holly folder and then used the WOW Metallic Red embossing powder on vellum for my sentiment (PTI Think Big Favorites: #21).
And here's the one using Real Red ink:
This one is actually embossed too...SU! inks stay wet for a few seconds, so I added some clear embossing powder over the image and then heat set it...gives it a nice shine IRL. I layered it with some Bitty Big DSP (Pure Poppy from PTI) and then added a few snowflakes using PTI's Fancy Flakes dies. A few sequins, some bakers twine, and a Tiny Tag (PTI) finished off this card.
