Lots of photos today to show off this gorgeous new STAMPtember Clearly Besotted collaboration set, Holiday Banners. I’ve also an Online Card Class giveaway at the end of this post so please keep reading to the end! Here’s a closer look at the classic icons and two banner images :D
Lots of heat embossing on this card, in fact, all of the stamping for this card was heat embossed. I took the little snowflake image, stamped several times on Canson watercolor card with Versamark and white heat embossed then repeated and this time silver heat embossed.
For the banner, I stamped the image in Versamark on Vellum and white heat embossed and then also silver heat embossed the circle snowflake and trimmed out before adding to the banner with clear foam adhesive.
The banner was then added to the panel with more foam adhesive.
All that was left was to add a few sequins. The supplies for this card totalled not much more than one stamp set, one ink pad, a couple of pots of embossing powder and some paints :D You can check out the Holiday Banners set here.
