This first card is stamped onto acetate and then gold leaf added to the back. I then attached it with brads to a piece of backing paper from my Artylicious Season's Greetings cd which I had already stamped another image.
For this second card, I stamped with versamark onto semi-glossy white card and embossed with clear EP. I then used my brayer and the Adirondak Noel multicolour inkpad (now sadly discontinued) to brayer over the top and because of the EP resist, if you look closely there appears to be a shadow of each tree image which I really like. I admit this was a happy accident!
The image is then matted onto some Glimmer Misted card (from my bit box).
As you can see, this third card is really simple but I love the clean, classy look of it. I just embossed all the images in gold onto plain white cardstock, matted and layered the tree and sentiment onto gold mirri. Then cut out the partridge and the pear and attached them with 3D foam pads.
And finally a couple more cynic's quotes :-
