I decided to do a bunch of colored heat embossing using the stamps from the Tree of Seasons set. I heat embossed the tree image first, then the bird and ribbon. I decided to emboss them onto patterned paper to have my scene "ready made" for me. ;) Some silver glitter paper was used for snow, and a sentiment from the Festive Greetings set was added over the top after it was stamped onto vellum. Some brads and a single red rhinestone were all that was needed to finish off the focal panel because of all the glittery goodness from the embossing.
This card is very mail friendly because I kept it pretty flat and without too many embellishments. I really like the way it turned out--the heat embossing didn't fail me this time! ;) I'd love to hear what you think in the comments below! :)
Thank you so much for stopping by, friends! I'll be back tomorrow with another card using *NEW* stamps from Inspired By Stamping! For more inspiration, make sure to head over to Joanna's blog for a list of those who are crafting today! Until tomorrow, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)
