Peace and Happiness

How about more Christmas cards? It's good idea to start with it early to avoid rush in December. I used Sparkle N Sprinkle rubber stamp set Christmas Holly Blessings on my golden card.

Image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Promarkers. The vase was 'colored' with Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen and covered with Midnight Gold Glitter. Sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Gold Detail Embossing Powder.

I wanted to add a bit more dimension to the image. So I covered berries with Strawberry Coulis Nuvo Jewel Drops and glittered vase with Limonello Jewel Drops

Now, to my favorite part of the card - the background. For the card base I used Tonic Trellis Circles die to cut two scalloped circles. One of them is scored 1 cm from the edge and adhered to second die cut shape. 
I used another die from same Tonic set to cut trellis pattern in to the white cardstock. It is cut to the circle shape with scissors. I used Indian Gold Nuvo Embellishment Mousse to color it. I adheres this layer to the cardstock which was previously covered with 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape. After cutting of the excess paper I covered holes between the trellis with Midnight Gold Glitter.

Golden center panel is cut with scissors. it is also colored with Indian Gold Mousse. I used an embossing folder with brick pattern to dry emboss it. Raised parts are slightly covered with Mother of Pearl Mousse. Edge of the circle and the sentiment layer are covered with Small tip Nuvo Glue Pen and Midnight Gold Glitter.
