Joy Noel Christmas Ornaments Card

This card features Christmas decorations.
The pretty ornaments hang from poinsettia and holly trimmings.

Sentiment:  Joy Noel

These are actually two images that I paired together easily, then lightly colored them in.
All that was left was to add tiny gems and paper accents.

Merry & Bright Holiday Owl Cards and Tutorial

Today I have adorable owl Christmas cards and a little embossing tutorial.

Sentiment:  May your holidays be merry & bright.

This little owl is surrounded by Christmas gifts and decorations.  The image is on vellum.  The background is embossed.

I snapped a photo along the way while making this set of cards.

Embossing paste tutorial:

Tools:  Stencil, embossing paste, craft spatula, cardstock, plastic craft mat, masking tape, baby wipes, finished image panel.

On a plastic craft mat, tape the stencil over your cardstock panel using masking tape or non permanent tape.
Lift a small amount of paste with a craft spatula.
Spread onto the stencil around the edges of the cardstock panel. Emboss as much area as you prefer.  Lift off excess paste and returning it to the jar.
Carefully remove the tape and stencil from the cardstock.
Set aside the embossed panel to dry completely.
{Close the paste jar.  Clean the stencil and spatula right after every application.}
Once the panel is dry, use it as a background for your craft project.
{To save paste, I emboss only the areas that I want highlighted.}

While I had my supplies out, I made a set of these sweet holiday cards.

Link Ups:

Supplies:  Unity Owl I Want stamps, My Favorite Things dies and stencil, My Creative Time dies, Dreamweaver Stencils metallic gold embossing paste, eyelets, vellum, Copic markers, doily and foam tape.

I hope this inspires you today.
