I'm surrounded by so much snow here that my initial thought was to make a card featuring snowflakes, but I decided enough! I embossed some core'dination card with the Christmas Countdown folder and sanded back to reveal the lilac core. I cut a mat of lilac card for the embossed layer and adhered to the card base. I stamped the ornaments (sadly I don't know what company made this one) in Versamark and heat embossed with black powder. I added colour to the image by sponging on distress inks. I finsished the front with a simple metallic sentiment banner. On the inside I cut a mat layer of lilac card and on the white panel stamped a bold Christmas sentiment and finished by adding some of those snowflakes!!
I have to say that I really enjoyed the monochromatic cards you made for last week's challenge - it's going to be tough to pick a winner! I hope you have fun with this week's technique and don't forget to check out the blog to see inspiration cards from the rest of the team. See you soon.
That embossed background is soooo cool. Love how you've sanded it down to reveal the core. Embossed baubles - the perfect finishing touch.

This just looks SO cool, Deb! LOVE the fabulous colors and the wonderful image you chose! HUGS and have a great rest of the weekend! :) Mynn xx
I love these unexpected colors for this Christmas card! Lovely!
I like the way you've sponged the color on the ornaments - along with the sponging around the edges of the panel, it gives a really nice "glow" to your card.
Fabulous embossing Deborah - it's a lovely card - Jacqueline xx
