I had so much fun creating this card that I only wish I could have gotten better photos. Hopefully the closeups I took will give you a good idea of how gorgeous this card really is.
I started out by wiping VersaMark ink on my embossing folder. The folder had teal blue residue and the ink picked up that color. I then heat embossed my deli embossed paper with Recollections glitter embossing powder.
My circle was cut from a scrap of card stock I marbled using shaving cream and reinkers last year. I love the way this paper turned out and think it is time I marble more paper using this technique.
I hate to admit it but I bought Neon Ampifly several months ago and haven't really used as I didn't like my results. However I got to thinking and decided to see what happened if I painted it on before using my heat gun. I love the way the beard and mustache turned out using it.
Another thing I haven't used much is Martha Stewart flocking powder. I used a paint brush to apply glue and then sprinkled the flocking on the band of Santa's hat.
I tried to paint the hat with a red gelato but it was too pastel and the color was trying to bleed into the flocking. I ended up taking a Poppy Red color pencil and coloring. The holly and the bell on the hat were colored with gel pens.
