January Rudolph Days - Three Kings Double Embossed

Hi, Friends......

I am here with another Three Kings card to share that I made from this new set I just received as a prize from STAMPlorations. I am entering this one in Scrappy Mo's first Rudolph Days of 2020. Yay!! I used one of my backgrounds made from scraps of patterned and solid paper, which I am now calling my "Strips-o'-Scraps" backgrounds! lol...

I double embossed the background...first with an embossing folder and then with gold embossing powder. Love the rich effect. Perfect for my Magi. I also spattered the background and sentiment panel with some Heidi Swapp Color Shine Spray in Bronze. The splatters actually look gold with a green halo....which worked great for this color palette.

I used the Power Poppy Creative Confetti Sketch as inspiration for this card:

Supplies used include:
STAMPlorations - Three Kings by The Bee's Knees stamp set
Gold and Maroon embossing powders from my stash
Versamark ink
Core'dinations/Darice solid cardstock
Lots of scraps for my "Strips-o'-Scraps" Background
Heidi Swapp Color Shine Spray in Bronze
