Non-traditional Christmas

I created a card in silver and navy for the Mod Squad non-traditional challenge. The card was posted from Split Coast Stampers, but decided to share it here.

Joyful Christmas

I used an older set from Stampin Up called Joyful Christmas. I stamped the poinsettia two times on In the Navy cardstock, and embossed it with Ranger Silver embossing powder. I fussy cut the poinsettia out and layered it. I used a Darice embossing folder and partially embossed it. I added a silver strip of paper between the embossing and the sentiment. The white paper is GKD Artists Choice. It was heavy enough that the paper didn’t rip after being embossed, like the thinner paper did.

I like these colors. This is one of my favorite sets for Christmas, and I have a lot to choose from.

  1. This is gorgeous. I love silver and navy together. Do you ever watch Frenchies stamps? She gave a tip about using a piece of vellum when you are dry embossing thin card stock. It works like a charm and your cs doesn’t split. The vellum can be used several times so you aren’t wasting a piece each time.

    1. Thanks for the tip. I forgot that the embossing folder I used seems to split cardstock. I will look for Frenchies video on that topic.
