Hey there! Today's card was created with the Peaceful Nativity Bundle. I found an old swap while I was cleaning the other day and decided to re-create with new colors, stamps, and accessories:
I used Blackberry Bliss for my card base and the strip I embossed with the Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder. After embossing I brayered over the embossed images with White Craft Ink. I decided the white was overpowering the design, so I removed some of the ink from the raised areas by lightly swiping with a baby wipe. I just had to let it dry for a bit before adding any adhesive. I really like the look!
After gold heat-embossing the Holy Family on Shimmery White, I punched with the Label Me Lovely Punch. I punched a second label from gold Brushed Metallic card stock, cut it in half, to add to the back of the label. I cut the star from the same gold Brushed Metallic with a Nativity Die.
I gold heat-embossed the greeting and added three Gilded Gems.
Here's a paper-saving trick: I conserved my gold Brushed Metallic card stock by cutting 1/2" strips the length I needed to adhere to the edges of the front embossed strip and to the inside layer!
Blackberry Bliss card base: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored & folded 4 1/4" embossed strip: 1 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Brushed Metallic (gold) strips: 1/2" x 5 1/2" (need 2 front), 1/2" x 4 3/4" (need 2 inside) to punch label: 3" x 3" to cut star: scrap
Shimmery White for focal image label: 3" x 3" inside sentiment: 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"
