January Rudolph Day

It's time for the first Rudolph Day of the year!  For the past few years I've had a theme for my Rudolph Day cards - in 2017 I used images from a Lili of the Valley 'Festive Foliage' Art Pad, in 2018 I made 4" x 4" cards and last year all of my cards had a Christmas tree.  I've decided that this year my theme will be embossing - wet and/or dry.

This card has both wet and dry embossing.  I embossed a piece of white card, trimmed the edges and rounded the corners before attaching it to the card blank.  The embossing folder had also die cut the bauble shape from the embossed panel.  I attached a snippet of pink paper onto a snippet of card and stamped the bauble with purple ink before embossing it with clear embossing powder.  I placed the bauble into the embossing folder and die cut it before inlaying it into the card.  I punched a small circle from gold card and attached it to the bauble before adding a small gold bow.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 4" white matt card blank
     Practical Publishing 'Opulent Baubles' embossing folder and dies
     Versafine Imperial Purple ink
     Stampendous clear embossing powder
     Hole punch
     Snippets of pink patterned paper, gold card and white matt card
     Upcycled gold bow (from one of my Christmas cards)

I am entering the following challenges:
     ABC Christmas Challenge - B for Bingo (Die Cut, Clean & Simple, Embossing)
     Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge - Trim the Tree
     Rudolph Day - January challenge

Love the way you have inlaid the bauble back into the embossed background. Looks very effective. I have so many embossing folders yet I fail to use them. I shall take mysrlf off to the naughty step and try and make amends. Hugs Mrs A.

I think the theme is a great idea Kath and gives you something to work to, and your white embossed background complements the pretty bauble perfectly. x
