Snowflakes Christmas Cards

Hi everyone welcome back, Adriana here, for my blog post today I have created a couple of very different Christmas cards Teamed up with some of the
 New Card Deco Essentials Inks from Couture Creations.
I love creating backgrounds with stamping and embossing powders.
So, I decided to create a different colour theme instead of the usual
green, gold and red christmas traditional colours - I stepped out of the square and created these two cards in Blue & Silver tones!! I love the touches of silver to complement the blue tones.

Snowflakes Christmas Cards by Adriana Bolzon

Using the Snowflake mini stamp CO726915

from the Naughty Or Nice collection
I stamped the image a few times around the card stock with
Card Deco Essential Pearl White Pigment Ink CDEIPL008

then lightly added some
Glacier White Opaque Embossing Powder CO725963
and heat set with my heat gun

With a sponge dauber blend some of the
Card Deco Essential Mid Blue Pigment Ink CDEIPL015 & in the centre
Card Deco Essential Blue Purple Pigment Ink CDEIPL014

Did you know that all cut, foil and emboss dies DO NOT HAVE TO BE foiled!!!!
This time I added pigment ink to the Naughty or Nice - Donner reindeer CO726929,cut foil and emboss die then
as per the sandwich combination of any die cutting with your die cutting machine
I created a inked reindeer ! Yes, no foiling just inking!!

Adding some seam binding ribbon and some 
Lacey silver stickers for added silvery touch AD246201

For the second card, I did the same background but added the Merry Christmas
cut, foil and emboss die - again NO FOILING - just adding pigment ink and running it through the die cutting machine.

Cut, foil and emboss dies are so great and versatile, as you do not have to foil with them, just add some pigment ink over the top and then place through your die cutting machine and presto and decorative element with no foiling just coloured and all cut out in one process, too easy !!
