Challenge me a Christmas Card with Laura Bassen

Welcome to "Challenge me a Christmas Card" for 2019! I have asked cardmaking friends to join me in the lead up to Christmas by challenging me to make a card using a specific style, theme, technique or product.



My guest for today is Laura Bassen of laurafadora. Laura has challenged me to make a rainbow Christmas card with emboss resist.

You can check out her take on the challenge HERE

Here's what I came up with:


I started my stamping and white embossing the holly leaves and berries from Annabelle Stamps into a wreath (sadly, this company is no longer).  I painted over the images with a rainbow of Distress Oxide inks, making the colour more intense inside the leaves and the berries. I added a layered die cut sentiment from Paper Rose Studio (3 layers with glitter paper from Simon Says Stamp as the top layer) and a glitter border using a die from Altenew. I finished by adding some more shimmer with a Wink of Stella brush over the leaves and berries.
