New challenge - Christmas - Anything Goes

 I used the following products to make this card

Tim Holtz stamps, Santa's Wish

Starburst Stains Holiday Wreath set

Distress Inks On the main image

Moonglow Embossing Powder Holly Berry Red Gold  to make the 2-tone red/gold heart embellishment, which was then stamped with Aspect of Design 62 Artistic Elements  with heart wings stamp

Nestie: Classic Scalloped Heart I cut the heart embellishment with thick card, the thickest I could cut with my nestie


White Webbing Spray over the Starburst Stain background, (this is only available at the shop as we cannot post the aerosol spray).

The picture below shows the embellishment that I've built up with about 2-3 layers of of the embossing powder.  When using more than one layer of Moonglow EP you really get to see the 2-tone effects.

 Finally a picture of the white webbing spray, it really stands out from darker backgrounds

  1. Love this. Any tips for making embelishments made from embossing powder postal proof so they don't arrive broken?

  2. Love this card Jill and particularly your heart embellishment. The TH stamp is fabulous and the colours you have chosen fit perfectly.
    Hope you enjoy bonfire weekend.
    Luv Brenda xxx

  3. This is so gorgeous, I love it! I am going to have to get that TH stamp one of these days :)

  4. This is beautiful Jill, really gorgeous warm Christmas colours. Love the Starburst Stains as well, they're such fabulous colours. The webbing is fascinating!!

  5. Thank you for your comments ladies.

    Kate, if I am posting a UTEE piece I usually put a piece of bubble wrap over it, if it is a large piece you really need to use thick card as your base. I've posted quite a few to my family and they have got there OK with bubble wrap to protect them. Hth!!

  6. Beautiful card. thanks for sharing and have a great day. Angela

  7. A truely beautiful card - I love your background and webbing spray. Everytime I see another set of starburs stains it has to go on my wish list lol x
