Holiday Joy - FWF 9-2
I am here with a Christmas card for my Unity Friends with Flair project. You might recall that Unity is changing things up a bit and now combines their Friends with Flair feature with their weekly designer hop. The hop used to be on Thursdays, but is now on Tuesday evenings. We have 24 hrs to link up our Friends with Flair project on the same linky as the hop.
For this card, I used the Unity - Holiday Joy and Clearsnap - Designer Foil. I haven't played with the foil much, so I am still getting the hang of it. I stamped with Versamark and heat embossed the image with Stampendous - Stamp and Bond Embossing Powder and then pressed the foil sheet over the sticky image. It didn't turn out perfect, but I am not dissatisfied with it. I will keep practicing. I love the gold on the black!!
This background, which I dry embossed with my Darice - Snowflakes and Flourishes folder, is one that I've had in my stash since last winter. (Yes, I usually make extras while I have my Big Shot out!) I matted it in black to coordinate with my focal panel and mounted it on a glittery gold pre-made card base. A yummy gold mesh ribbon finished the card.
Does this get you in the mood for making Christmas cards?? :)
