I am continuing my quest to get a head start on Christmas cards! The Merry Monday Challenge for this week is any kind of embossing. My last Christmas post was dry embossing so I thought I would focus on heat embossing this time.
Santa was stamped with Watering Can Archival Ink on watercolor paper and colored with watercolor. Love this stamp...it was so easy to add a little color and call it ready to mount!
The sentiment was heat embossed with Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder. Because I wanted to carry that color across Santa's layering paper, I inked the edges with Versamark and then heat embossed for the shiny matching layer!
The DP is printed with "Yes Virginia, There is a Santa Claus" so I was careful about the strategic placement. I inked around the edges of the DP with Distress Ink and mounted on a Kraft card base.
I also had to try it out in a different color scheme...since the DP came in multiple colors! All of the other details are the same.
