I'm still working on Christmas cards and this is another CAS looking one - even though the making of the card itself wasn't particularly simple! I used a digi Xmas elf from the wonderful Make it Crafty and kept the colour scheme to just blue and orange, so far so simple right? Then I decided to do some heat embossing - not something I do very often but I wanted to add some snowflakes and didn't just want to stamp them in ink alone. I used two different rubber stamps from my stash and embossed them with Stampendous Opaque white powder, then sponging a pale blue ink pad over the whole background. To add further interest and texture, I embossed a snowflake garland, cut using my Cameo and this was where the embossing got very messy! I don't need to go into details but you really shouldn't have a sneezing fit when using embossing powder, especially when you're doing it near your pc keyboatd!!
Moving on! The card was then finished off with a Xmas sentiment which I inked in the same background colour - it shows up far better IRL, trust me! So, one (not so) clean and simple Christmas card finished!
