Christmas Card .......

Alternative card  to Tag 6 12 days of Christmas

2 posts in one day ... I have a very good Christmas crafting day today firstly I made Tag 6  which I posted earlier here and then using the same technique and a different folder I made DH a Christmas card!

I enjoyed making Tag 6 so much that I just had to do it again and using a different folder....the only other Christmas one I have... I embossed my square of foil which I attached to card before painting when finished I embossed the edges in black and this really made the design pop, I can't tell you how it just does look like a piece of old painted metal I wish you could see it in rl such a fabulous technique... I Love It!!!
My Santa metal embellishment was painted with red and covered in clear embossing ink as before. Ribbon was swiped with walnut stain DI spritzed with water and then scrumpled the ribbon into it and dried with heat gun

Hope DH likes it I really struggle with a Christmas card for him and usually I am making it right at the last minute...

Materials used
Foil, Ranger dabbers, Embossing Folder Alterations, Black embossing powder, Distress Ink walnut stain, red card stock and kraft card blank, Santa embellishment my stash!
