Christmas Cards, Continued

It's still raining, and I'm still making cards, though it's past time for a lunch break.
This first one uses images from PID sheet 712, called Blue Christmas.

The dark blue paper was embossed with a snowflake folder.  Then I swiped over the raised areas with clear ink and used clear embossing powder mixed with glitter over that.  The snowy trees paper and the little girl are both from the PID sheet, and the ribbon and stamp are both retired Stampin' Up stuff.

This next one is a favorite.  I just may do some more of this design.  It just tickles me.  Mona with the Santa cap and candy cane can be found on PID sheet 710.



Both background layers have been embossed with two different snowflake folders. On the red layer I added some brown ink on the raised areas.  I left the second layer alone so it wouldn't look too busy under Mona.

Love them both but the first one just jumps out at me. When you say you rubbed it with embossing in and then the glitter, did you heat set it then after that? These sheets just are fabulous, I love what you do with them.

Love them both. The quirkiness of Mona is brilliant.
