CAS - Perfect Pearls - Xmas Cards

hi there, Yogi here today with a couple CAS cards for Xmas...

PS the card below shows the Perfect Pearls background to better advantage...

Both cards start of with a side folded 5.5" x 4.25" white cardstock. I taped off a 1/2" border all around (ps if you're doing multiples, just make yourself a stencil for the border from thin cardstock or clear plastic).
Stamped the Textured Holiday Word stamp repeatedly using Versamark (can use Perfect Medium or Distress Emboss pad as well). While the ink was wet, dusted on Perfect Pearls (Perfect Gold, Rust, Forever Green). Wiped off the excess with a dry paper towel. Removed my tape and drew a border around my stamping. Red Zig marker on one and a Faber Castell Artist Pen "Copper " for the other.

On the first card I stamped the tree/deer image (Memory Box) with Versafine Black Onyx.

On the card at right I stamped the Holly leaf flourish with Versafine "Spanish Moss" and embossed with "Queen's Gold" and some "Olive Leaf" embossing powder.

To create the raised leaves, I stamped them again in black, scanned them, and cut with my electronic cutter, then applied some of the Moss and embossed with the same powders. (PS if you don't have an electronic cutter, you could just hand cut them.

I adhered them to the card so the leaves were raised, (see detail pic below) and added a large red rhinestone.

The sentiment was stamped with the Black and clear embossed.

Hope you give it a try if you're looking for something quick and easy. The Perfect Pearls give such a nice background.
