Holiday Ebossalicious - Christmas in July

Today, my design features one of the new Embossalicious Christmas Folders and a sentiment from an upcoming new new release of Sentimentals stamps.

I dig all the folders and the Sentimentals images!! There's a variety of sizes and shapes. I'll make more designs with them! I think my DT sisters love them as much as me and will be making some fabulous designs featuring them - so be sure to pop over and visit them! The new folders come in a variety of sizes - this folder is an 8x8" so I used the folder with my eBosser!  The eBosser great for larger folders, as well as multiple cuts/embosses in one pass - plus, it's automatic, so no cranking a handle! :o) I embossed these lovely detailed ornaments on a few different types of cardstock.

I chose the vellum cardstock and paired it with black and silver. I trimmed the section I wanted to fit on the greeting card and ran it through a stick maker.  I've tried various vellum adhesives, but have yet to find one that does not show through. I used my finger to burnish the adhesive down around the ornaments. For an added touch of sparkle, I used a silver metallic pen on some of the ornaments' detail and sentiment.

Crafter's Companion has had several new releases. For more ideas, be sure to pop over to the Crafter's Companion Information Blog, as well as visit the Crafter's Companion DT members.  You can see their latest designs by clicking on the names on the left side of my blog.

Thank you for visiting!!

Take care and STAY POSITIVE!

Very interesting card. I like the way you glued down the vellum around the images, I think it makes the ornaments stand out.
Very pretty.
