Holiday Card Bootcamp Card!

Good morning, everyone!

I'm currently taking another online card making class called Holiday Card Bootcamp and this card was inspired by Jennifer McQuire!

This embossed card turned out so perfect for mailing!
If you click to enlarge, you can see all the shimmer and shine from the Perfect Pearls.

To make the background, you simply emboss a panel of watercolor paper and then using distress inks, you buff on the ink.  Spray it with some Perfect Pearls and let it dry for a beautiful shine.

Materials Used (all PTI, unless otherwise noted):
Year of Flowers: Poinsettia stamp set (sentiment)
Sizzix embossing folder - Winter Botanicals
Photo Finishers: Holiday dies
Rustic Cream cardstock
Misc. red cardstock from LSS
VersaFine ink - Onyx Black
Tim Holtz distress inks - Festive Berries & Forest Moss
Perfect Pearls mist - Perfect Pearl

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hey the card, especially the glimmer! Decided not to take this card camp...too much else on my plate right now. Sorry haven't been commenting more often on your wonderful creations. Trying to get back in the loop, slowly.
