"MERRY CHRISTMAS" Inlaid ~ Ink Embossed Christmas Card

I was up early this morning getting one off to school and the other off to her day program.  After they left, I sat down at my desk and was looking at a tub on the shelf full of embossing folders. I grabbed the one in front and decided to use it on a card.   Instead of just embossing a layer, I decided to take one of the mini Hero Arts ink pads that came in last month's Monthly Hero kits, rub it on the inside, insert a white piece of card stock and run it through my BigKick.   I just love how it turned out.    

I die-cut the "Merry" in white and green and inlaid the green on the white card stock.   I took the negative of the die-cut and laid it back over it and then used my Wink of Stella pen to brush the shimmery stuff onto the Merry.   I also put some Wink of Stella on the Poinsettia and leaves, I then used a Gold Sharpie for the center of the Poinsettia.


card stock:  White, Red and Green
ink:  Hero Arts Reds/Greens, Gold Sharpie, Wink of Stella Clear Glitter
stamps:  Hero Arts Stamp & Cut Merry, Hero Arts Monthly Hero Oct. stamp set
accessories:  Scor-Pal, Hero Arts Monthly Hero Oct. Dies, Hero Arts Stamp & Cut Merry, Sizzix Embossing Folder Powdered Sugar, and Foam Tape

thanks for looking ~

have a great airborne day!
God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them

What an amazing card! I never imagined this embossing folder would work on a Christmas card, but it looks fabulous with the added color! I love the shimmery inlaid sentiment too!
