I started out by stamping snowflakes from Mama Elephant's Season's Greetings set in Memento Summer Sky, Teal Zeal, Lulu Lavender, and London Fog. I used Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder to heat emboss the Happy sentiment from Mama Elephant's Happy Everything on top of the stamped snowflakes and the Holidays sentiment onto a scrap of white card stock which I cut out and used foam tap to mount over the y in Happy. I finished the card off by mounting the while panel on some teal card stock.
For the second card I used the same stamps in the same colors, but with a landscape card instead of portrait. Instead of Liquid Platinum embossing powder I used Ranger Princess Gold. I also added strips of gold with my Pilot Gold Paint Marker and some Pretty Pink Posh 4mm sparkling clear sequins. I really like both cards, but I think the gold edging and sequins really make the second one shine.
I am entering this second card into the Mama Elephant and Me Holiday Cards & Tags Challenge.
