We are on the last week of Christmas in July at SweetStamps.com and our focus is on Parchment Stamping.
I created using Silver Bells : ) If you start singing Silver Bells it will make me smile : ) I stamped the image Bells with Bow onto Parchment Vellum. First, use an antistatic pad! Using embossing ink, I achieved this twinkle using Ivory Fantasy EP.
I fussy cut out the Silver Bells. I colored in the back and a tiny bit on the front of the Vellum with Copic (Sketch) markers. I added some piercing and I embossed from behind on the round bell portion and added Sakura Gelly Roll pen so it would really sparkle.
I embossed the image Scroll Scissors Frame (also) using Ivory Fantasy EP. I fussy cut the edge of the image and also cut out the oval from the inside. I added dots of G18 Copic (Sketch) marker on the dots around the edges. I popped up the red layer on dimensionals, I had red cardstock behind the oval, but decided to soften the look by adding (Parchment) Vellum on it.
Finally, I embossed Merry Christmas and added it to the front of the card. I layered the red top layer over a Metallic Silver cardstock (from SU), then an Ivory shimmery cardstock from Paper Temptress.
