February Rudolph Day

My first card today is for the February Rudolph Day Challenge and I have used both wet and dry embossing (embossing is my Rudolph Day theme this year).

I embossed a piece of white card with the holly embossing folder and trimmed around the edge.  Using my MISTI I stamped the sentiment in the centre with green ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I trimmed a piece of dark green card for my matt layer, but it looked rather 'flat' against the shiny embossed sentiment.  To give the green card some shine I applied Versamark around the edge of the card panel and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I layered the holly panel onto the green matt and attached it to the centre of the card.

To make this card I used:
     5" x 5" white matt card blank
     Woodware  'Festive Verse' stamp
     Apple Blossom 'Holly' embossing folder
     Versafine Olympia Green ink
     Stampendous clear embossing powder
     Dark green and white matt card

I am entering the following challenges:
     Moving Along With The Times - No image - sentiment/quote as focus to your card     
     Rudolph Day - February challenge
     The Male Room - Use Embossing
     Winter Wonderland - Anything Christmas Goes Tribute Challenge

The pattern and shape of the embossing folder, leaving that lovely circle plain in the centre, is so pretty Kath and with room for this great sentiment, and a wonderful idea to heat emboss the edge of the green layer with the clear gloss to complement the sentiment. x
