Metallic Christmas

Hello, and Happy Friday!!! yay!!!  So happy to be here today sharing this pretty new Christmas card with you all.  This card is also being featured on the SweetStamps.com blog, so be sure to stop by and check it out as well as play along in our current layers challenge for a chance to win a $10 gc to the store!

Now back to my card...


I used a new technique (at least to me) on this card and I'm just so excited with it's results!  To create my background I started with Geo Triangles Stencil and white embossing paste.  After removing the stencil, and while the paste was still wet, I sprinkled 24k. Gold Embossing Enamel and heat.  It sort of bubbled up at first, but then smoothed out as the embossing enamel spread.  The results are truly gorgeous, and I have a few upclose photos to show...



I am also entering this into the Virginia's View Challenge: Metallics

Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
