My project is a Christmas card with white heat embossed sentiments and hanging ornaments. The vertical “Merry” is from the Festive Corners stamp set, and the ornaments are from the Ornamental Envelopes set. I stamped them in Versamark ink on Misty Moonlight card stock, sprinkled white embossing powder on the stamped ink, then melted it with a heat tool. I then wrapped a piece of Misty Moonlight ribbon around the top of the stamped panel so the ornaments appear to hang from it. I layered the panel on a mat of white card stock, then adhered the panels to a layer of the designer paper, then to the card front. I added three white dots to embellish the card and add the finishing touch. I stamped a small ornament on the inside off the card, and I used coordinating designer paper with the envelopes dies to make a liner for the envelope.
