Christmas with Sparkle

Welcome

Today starts another challenge over at Word Art Wednesday, with another beautiful scripture available free over there.  
Our sponsor for this challenge is Crafty Individuals with a 25 pound voucher to their store.


I started this card with the idea of silver on blue, and then found my Iridescent Silver embossing powder...  which made it hard to photograph... 


I printed the beautifully crafted verse, trimmed it and embossed the edges


The image from Sweet n Sassy stamps  O Holy Night set was perfect, and embossed well
In the above photo you can see some of the glitter. 


I sprinkled the embossing powder on the background and heated from underneath, and it gave the impression of twinkling, sparkly stars in the night sky.


The inside was stamped with another sentiment from the same set,  in Concord & 9th Midnight  dark blue ink, which I had also used on the edges of the insert.

A beautiful card Maxine and I love the effect you got with sprinkling the powder and heating from the underside. The last time I heated like that was many many years ago when I first tried embossing and had to set/melt it with a toaster.
Beautiful scripture
Blessings, Neet xx
