Gilded - Xmas 09 - Cuttlebug
4.25"w x 5.5"h each

Created: November 21, 2009

I picked up this Xmas words "Season's Greetings" #37-1931 embossing folder and it is just so versatile. You can use it as a whole folder or cut the words you want. I opted to cut words and made 2 cards with a piece left over for another card.

For all the cards, I used white 65# cardstock and covered it completely and well with Mona Lisa adhesive size. Waited for it to get tacky dry and then placed my composition gold leaf on it. Burnished and brushed off the excess. Ran it through the Cuttlebug with the various embossing folders.

All cards are a cream toned cardstock and the rubber stamped sentiments are from Quietfire Design ("Snowflakes are the Fairy Dust", "Textured Xmas Words 08", "12 Days of Xmas set")

I sponged the The sentiment piece with Distress stamp pad, Shabby Shutters and added the green/gold ribbon


This one was embossed with the "Script" #37-1152 embossing folder, trimmed and adhered tot he card. Punched out a 2"circle, rubber stamped my shaped floral branch (Local King Rubber "Poinsettias") with Tombows, and the sentiment word with Black Onyx, sponged the edges with the Shabby Shutters, sprayed with workable fixative, then put a good coat of Distress Crackle "Rock Candy". Adhered it to the card with Golden's extra heavy gel medium, and weighted it down to dry. Tied a gauzy gold ribbon.

This is another part of the cut words used on the first card, top and bottom of this card. Repeatedly rubber stamped the hanging ornaments (Old Island Rubber »Ornaments» #384F) on a separate piece of cream cardstock and colored them in with Sakura metallic Gel pens. Trimmed down and adhered to cardstock. Added the purple/green ribbon.

Embossed using the Holly #37-1897 folder. Rubber stamped the word Joy with black onxy and clear embossed. Went over the word with an Identipen, but even that didn't make it stand out enough, so rubber stamped the word on the ribbon as well.

Embossed this one using the Musical Notes "Allegro" #371641, trimmed it down and adhered it to the card. Rubber stamped the frogs onto some white cardstock, coloring the rubber with Tombows. Cut out and adhered to card. Rubber stamped the words with Black Onyx on pinky toned vellum and clear embossed.
