Joyful Holiday Blessings

Hi friends. Thanks for popping in today!

I am sharing a quick card I made today for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge that ends tomorrow. I have been playing with the Simon Says Stamp December card kit and I love it!

I created my own background using one of the stamps in the stamp set from the card kit. I heat embossed it using clear embossing ink to give it a tone on tone look. It really makes the back pop!

I then adhered a piece of silver metallic paper that also comes in the kit to the middle of the card and cut a piece of vellum slightly smaller. Before adhering the vellum I placed some white sewing thread between the two pieces for some added texture.

I then stamped the sentiment from a Winnie & Walter set called The Big, The Bold and The Blessings and heat embossed it with white and liquid platinum embossing powder. The liquid platinum also comes in the card kit and is such an amazing color! It's now one of my favorite powders to use!

I adhered all of the pieces to the card and then scattered some of the sequins also included in the kit around the card. I had a hard time getting the left side of the vellum to stay down since I didn't have anything to help glue it down. I went with a white piece of bakers twine and tied a bow at the top. I rounded the top right of card with my We R Memory Keepers corner rounder and call it a day!

I love the navy, silver and and white together. I don't use vellum enough and this makes me want to!
