I've been taking the Online Card Class and got some great ideas for holiday cards. Debby Hughes did a dry embossing over embossing paste that looked like molten metal and I knew that was just what I needed for the CASology challenge this week.
I play in the hand bell choir at church and knew immediately that was how I was headed with this card. It will be great to give the director for Christmas.
I cut the bell from the Stretch Your Imagination Cricut cartridge. It had a clapper hanging out, so I taped off the clapper and handle before using the negative cut to put on the embossing paste. I poured gold embossing powder over the image and heat set it. I cut the handle from the positive image, embossed it with black powder and glued it on. The NBUS sentiment is from PTI's Signature Christmas stamped in Peeled Paint Distress Ink to match the background music paper. I was originally going to center the white panel but not enough of the music showed, so I stuck it up in the corner, mounted on foam tape.
Thanks for stopping by. It's really cold here today so I'm planning to hibernate in my craft room. How about you?
