December Holly & Narcissus

Good Morning! 

On The Great Impressions Blog today!

Using the Great Impressions stamp, G408 December Holly And Narcissus I stamped the image using Gold Embossing Powder and Versa Mark Ink on to a Spellbinders Lacy Squares die cut.  Image colored with Copic Markers and Sakura Glaze and Glitter Pens.

I cut a window and frame using the same Lacy Squares dies and added a sheet of Vellum, which sounds great in theory, but once the card is open and on display you can not see the beauty of the stamp (photo below).....live and learn.  ;)  I also added a couple of Fancy Flourishes and a Poinsettia Cameo Cut.  In the center I glued little golden beads.

Oooh mystery card!  lol

Our Monthly Challenge, Bling On The Holidays, is open, why not use some of your own beautiful Great Impressions Stamps and play along?  Don't forget to upload your GI creations to our Customer Gallery.

My card will also be entered into the Challenges at Stamping Sensations, Festive Florals and Penny Black, Anything Christmas!

Thanks for coming by, you MUST have learned something from this post lol

  3. This is gorgeous!! Love that vellum window. Guess it will just have to be displayed closed ;)

  4. Marvelous! The black frame and the flourish with the pointsettia are so attractive. The vellum window is genius, and one that I am going to try. Love the surprise inside. Gorgeous card my friend.

  5. I LOVE this idea, Donna! The vellum is a fabulous touch! The layered bloom and frame on front are just PERFECT for the image on the inside, too! Sending HUGS! :) Mynn xx
