A Christmas card!

Hi Everyone, a post from me at last and would you guess a Christmas card. LOL

This is one of the 75 cards I made, for family and friends, I also made boxes etc. for small Christmas gifts. I'll add them in the next few weeks - even though Christmas will be over!

I cut the "merry" out of gold mirror card with my Silhouette Cameo and printed the border, with the added Christmas, onto thick vellum, As it came out of the printer, still wet with ink, I added clear embossing powder, then heated as normal, it produced a lovely effect, which felt like it was a sticker. It's something I haven't done for years, but will be doing it more, I think.
Edited - replaced photo as this shows the embossing better.

This is gorgeous, and the gold gleams splendidly. Love holly on vellum and the red embossing sparkles. I've never tried to add EP on printer ink, but this looks great! That Cameo is a fabulous tool in your hands! (mine still gathering dust!) TFS, Hugs & Merry Christmas

This is so pretty and the embossing looks fab.
BTW the courses I've been doing are online, in fact they are from two people who are in Canada!
Merry Christmas.
