Cindy chose a great theme for this week’s challenge at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges, heat embossing. There are so many possibility to do some great Christmas projects with this technique. Heat embossing, I think was the element of card making that first attracted me to the craft and I rarely pick up my heat gun anymore. Time to get it out again.
I decided to make a tag for this challenge and use a Camel Silhouette stamp by Stampington & Company. I stamped my camel stamp in Versa Mark ink and embossed the image with detailed black embossing powder. I then used my distress inks in the colours of antique linen, aged mahogany, iced spruce and festive berries to colour the background of the tag. I then stamped in black Stazon ink the Joy stamp by Hampton Art and the word Christmas by Endless Designs.
The metal Tradition tag was from my stash along with the moss green fibers. I liked the way the tag came out and I think I will make some a few more. It is good to have a collection of cards and tags made well ahead of Christmas and one way of making sure you are ready this year is top join us at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges every week.
