And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Christmas Card Throwdown

Hello friends...Happy Saturday!  I am thrilled to be guest designing for the Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge today.  The technique challenge for this week is to use heat embossing on your card...what a perfect opportunity to finish my first Christmas card for 2019!

Creative Nugget:  Splashes of Distress Oxide colors were added to a mixed media panel before embossing it with the Flourishes Folder from Divinity Designs.   VersaMark ink was applied to the Leafy Edged Border and gold embossed.  The sentiment from the Joyful Christmas Stamp/Die Duo was also gold embossed on the bottom panel.  The poinsettia from the Merry Christmas Stamp/Die Duo was embossed and cut out twice...once on mixed media paper and once on vellum.  The mixed media Poinsettia was watercolored with Zig Real Brush Markers and the vellum one was mounted over the colored one.  I love using pearls and gems as embellishments...they are so appealing to the eye and the great thing about them is that you can emboss them any color to match your project.

I hope you were inspired by my card to play along with the Christmas Card Throwdown!

This card will also be submitted for the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by...have a wonderful weekend!

This is just beautiful, I love the colours. I've never tried embossing a pearl, it sounds fiddly, but I might just have a go. Thanks for being our guest designer this week at 52CCT x
