Christmas Blessings

Hello everyone...
Helen is here today with a Christmas card to share with you. I am working my Christmas cards since couple of months ago... little by little I am making progress :D

Today's card I used the Scattered Snow Background Builder Stamp to create the background. I stamped it on a heavy weight white cardstock with Versamark Ink Pad, and added some clear embossing powder. I heat set it with my craft heater. I did it twice.

I added some of the Iridescents Gelatos on the embossed cardstock and using finger with some water I blended the colors to create the night galaxy look. And then I used paper towel to remove the extra pigment from the embossed snowflake.

Look at the pearly-shiny look on the background!

I die cut the Holly and Swirls Die out of green cardstock and added some extra red gems on it.

For the sentiment, I heat-embossed one of the phrase from Big Christmas Greetings Stamp Set on a piece of vellum paper. I added the vellum paper on the card with some of the dries clear adhesive.

I finished the card with some of the Scarlet Satin Sequins. And the card is done :)

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
