The Paper Players #519

 Anne Marie is hosting a Tic Tac Toe Challenge at The Paper Players this week! Pick a row and come join us, we would love to see your creations in the gallery!  This is the perfect opportunity to add to your holiday card collection! 

 I went with the top row of Patterned Paper, Die Cut and Embossing. My card was created with pattern papers from the Serenity Collection, dies from the Yuletide Borders and Embossed Snowflakes from the Elegant Snowflakes stamp set. My card design is based on the sketch challenge at MFT.

The touch of gold in the Serenity papers adds so much elegance.  I added to the gold with gold embossed snowflakes and gold sequins.  I inked up my snowflake stamps with Versamark ink onto Vellum paper and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  In keeping with the gold theme, I cut the Merry Christmas sentiment onto cardstock and then covered the sentiment with Versamark and gold embossed as well. Here is a look at the complete Elegant Snowflakes stamp set, currently one of my favs!

  1. Beautiful, Allisa! The speckles of gold in the paper are so pretty. It goes so well with the gold snowflakes. I love that you embossed them on vellum. A perfect combination of the two challenges!

  2. Your blue and gold color palette is gorgeous Allisa, and the gold flecks in the background paper tie in the gold snowflakes so beautifully! Love this!

  3. Beautiful background paper! The tiny flecks of gold is a perfect accent. Pretty snowflakes and love that you embossed them on vellum. THank you for stamping along with the Festive Friday challenge.

  4. Love this, Allisa! The gold and the royal blue are a fabulous combination and I just love all of the beautiful detail in the snowflakes. So pretty!

  5. So beautiful Allisa! The gold metallic looks fabulous paired with the blue and the flecks in your paper bring the whole thing together. Gorgeous!

  6. Allisa, that gorgeous rich blue works wonderfully with the gold and I love the snowflakes in gold instead of the usual silver. So pretty
