Carols of Christmas Early Release

Hello stamping friends!

I am excited to share our exclusive early release from our Holiday catalog, Carols of Christmas.

I decided to use classic winter colors, and use a simple, clean design with my first project.  This is my first draft.  I stamped on vellum and layered it over our new snowflake embossing folder.  Isn't this large font stunning and powerful with presence?  The Carols of Christmas stamps are so simple for elegant card designs!

The embossing is rather indistinct in the first photo as the vellum flips up a bit.  So I went back and added pearls at the bottom to create weight.  And it allowed me to hide glue dots behind the pearls to adhere it tightly so the embossed image is more visible.

The Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folders makes a beautiful snowflake.  I realized that this embossing is best to spritz with water to soften the card stock fibers.  The dry card stock will crack so be sure you have spritzers on hand!  Spritz front and back and then place in the embossing folder and roll through your Big Shot!

What do you think?  Do the pearls make a better effect?  Please see the product list for my card at the end of this post.
