This card features Santa inside a wreath. The mint portion of the background was embossed using a Cuttlebug embossing folder and then inked. The santa is made from a stamp from Stamptivity called Father Christmas with Holly2. I colored in the stamped image and then attached pewter heart brads to the center of the flowers. Instructions are below.
Time Needed: 20 minutes
Father Christmas With Holly2
Black Ink Pad
Light Brown Cardstock
Corner Rounder Punch
3 Pewter Heart Mini Brads
Dry Embossing Folder/Tool

1.Cut the light brown sheet of 8.5X11 inch card stock in half so that each piece measures 5.5X8.5inches. This is going to be your card. Fold in half.
2.Cut out a piece of mint cardstock approximately 4X5.25inches. Using the corner rounder, round all the corners on the mint cardstock and the light brown card base.
3.There are many methods to emboss the mint cardstock piece. The method shown was done with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and Cuttlebug machine. Simply place the piece of cardstock in the embossing folder and run the folder through the machine. Lightly rub the metallic ink pad across the top of the paper so only the embossed portion is inked. An alternative method would be to stamp a background and heat emboss with gold embossing powder.
