Holiday Wishes

 Well, this started out as a 3x3" card for a challenge at Splitcoaststampers. But, I forgot to take a picture of that little bitty card before I then attached it to a 5.5 square card. The reason I did this is Canada Post seems to have a problem with regular mail, I cannot imagine what they would do with a tiny piece of mail. So there is some logic behind my bigger card. On the mini card I heat embossed the snowflakes with white embossing powder and sponged on the colours. On the background I stamped the snowflakes using the different colours of Tim Holtz inks I used for the sponging. I added sequins to the mini card to finish and did keep the "mini" a card on the larger base having stamped Merry and Bright along with some other snowflakes on the inside. Then my guilt got the better of me so I made a second 3x3 card.
I first cut my card using a petal label which is 3x3 then stamped my image and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I added a few gold cupped sequins ... done. I think it would make a great gift tag, and now I don't feel so guilty.

Kia, you heat emboss so perfectly all the time. My embossing is a mess. I love the colors you used on both cards, especially the red and gold on the second one. Glad to see you back into card making mode.
