Apothecary Art Christmas Card

This is a Christmas card I made for a Christmas in July team swap (yes! I know! We’re already thinking about Christmas!).  My card was inspired by this simply lovely card here.

This is a close up:

I wasn’t sure if I preferred a Very Vanilla background or a Cherry Cobbler background, so I made both to see which I liked best.  For those ladies who received my swap, they will know I ended up with a Very Vanilla background 🙂

Now, I didn’t emboss my frame with Gold Embossing powder – I was surprised that I didn’t have Gold Embossing powder in my craft stash!!  Of course, I will rectify that problem very quickly, lol!   So, my fix for the lacking of Gold Embossing powder was to stamp the image in Versamark ink, then into Soft Suede and then emboss the image with clear embossing powder.  It worked a treat!

The colours I’ve used are – Very Vanilla, Brushed Gold, Cherry Cobbler and Soft Suede.  And the Sentiment is from Four the Holidays (such a useful stamp set!).  With my Big Shot, I’ve used the Labels Collection Framelits, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder and Petals a Plenty Embossing folder.  My flower is, of course, my favourite new punch, the Blossom punch.  And the sparkle comes from the Champagne Shimmer Paint – which i adore!

Thanks for looking 🙂
