Happiest of Holidays...FTTC143 69

Mona Pendleton | Monday, November 7, 2011 @ 11:00 PM | ,

Happy Tuesday dear blogging friends! Not only is it time for another Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge but the FTTC DT is joining along with several members of the Flourishes DT and we will be peeking a few new goodies! I'm the Hostess this week so I chose to take on the Double Embossing technique. I've never tried this before but have always admired the beautiful outcome. Beate has created an awesome tutorial on Splitcoaststampers, click HERE, for those of you who are new to this technique as well.
Here's my sample using the Double Embossing technique:
Note the beautiful label and sentiment combination??? Well, Flourishes will be selling their own line of custom dies manufactured by Spellbinders! The Flourishes Keyhole die template set will be revealed tomorrow! To create my card, I stamped the lovely sentiment from Sentimental Christmas then cut using the smaller of the two die templates from the new Flourishes Keyhole set. I stamped the elegant snowflake image from Holiday Sparkle using VersaMark ink, embossed with silver embossing powder, highlighted using a W-1 Copic marker then added a gemstone brad in the center. 
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you take on the challenge and for some awesome inspiration, please be sure to see what the following designers have created: TammyHeatherSilkeMakikoCindyBeateMona (that's me), Miriam Napler (November Guest Designer), Christine, Danielle, and 
Jan Marie. Please be sure to visit the Flourishes site for COMPLETE details on how to join in on the fun!
Supplies Used:
Stamps: Flourishes Holiday Sparkle, Sentimental Christmas
Die Templates & Machine: Flourishes Keyhole, Sizzix Vagabond
Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug
Copic Marker:
W-1 from

Beautiful card! I checked out the double embossing technique and it looks doable but a bit of a stretch for someone like me who still has to double check the recipe each time just to do raised embossing! :D It really makes the blinged out snowflake stand out though!
