Finishing up Christmas in July

To finish up the week of Christmas in July with Crafter's Companion, I wanted to share a few cards I made with the new Christmas Elegance Embossalicious Embossing Folder.  It has dots on the top and snowflakes on the bottom ~ two of my very favorite things ... LOVE IT!  

For my first card, I embossed the cardstock and then smeared white pigment ink all over the snowflake portion.  Once it was dry, I added gems to the center of each snowflake.  Then I used a sentiment from the new Christmas Magic Sentimentals set.  (By the way, the charm is something I've had in my box of Christmas goodies for a very long time & I'm not sure who made it ~ sorry).

For my second card, I embossed the cardstock with the same Embossalicious folder and then used a sentiment from the Happy Holidays Sentimentals stamp set.  Below are a few photos on how I made this card.

First I embossed the's a photo of the card panel ~ it's so pretty without anything else!

Next, I used a dauber and sponged Front VersaMark Dazzle ink over the bottom of the card.

Then I added clear embossing powder over the ink and heat embossed it.  It comes out super shiney.

Then I dressed up the sentiment with some pretty snowflake swirls from the Ornate Snowflakes stamp set and Summer Sky Memento Ink.

That's it...pretty easy card.
