Glorious Christmas

I love this sentiment from the new Guardian Angel stamp set - I think it summarises all that Christmas should be!

This card is so quick and simple to make. Once I had die cut the Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles 

from white card, I embossed it using the Couture Creations Wild Poinsettia embossing folder -

making sure that I did not close the folder over the die.

I mounted the embossed panel onto a Kraft card base with mounting foam for dimension.

The sentiment was stamped onto a strip of white card and embossed with glittery gold embossing powder. I nipped the end of the strip with scissors to create a banner. The edges of the banner were inked with Versamark and embossed using the glittery gold embossing powder.

I took a length of American Seam Binding and tied it into a bow. Once I had snipped the tails, I inked them with Versamark and heat embossed them with the gold embossing powder.

I attached the sentiment to the card front with the ribbon bow, some twine and a button from my stash.

A very quick and easy Christmas card - great for batch making!
