Peaceful Holiday

Happy Monday, everyone! 

Emily here today with a peaceful holiday card with just a pop of color. I love little pops of red on holiday cards... I don't use red very much outside of my holiday crafting, so for me red is very festive and reminiscent of Christmas. 


To start, I used the Hero Arts Hand Drawn Snowflakes 6x6 background stamp to heat emboss a white card base with Silver Pearl embossing powder.The effect is very subtle, but very pretty and frosty. I then took a panel of teal card stock that was cut down slightly smaller than the card front. I heat embossed the birch trees, deer, and sentiment in white embossing powder (all from Wplus9's Winter Wonderland stamp set), then added the scarf and cardinals in bright red embossing powder. The snowflakes (from the same stamp set) were added using Perfect Medium and Perfect Pearls. The final touch was to swipe some white pigment ink around the edges of the teal panel to give it that frosted look. 


I hope you enjoyed this frosty card!! Have a fantastic week, friends!
