Yes, I am waaayyy behind. This sketch was posted two weeks ago. I actually had a version of this card made that weekend but a layer was crooked and I certainly couldn't post on the world wide web a card with a crooked layer!!! LOL! I finally got an improved version of this sketch finished last weekend. Here is the sketch:
I embossed the Shimmery White cardstock with Stampin' Up!'s Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder. To keep the center of the oval from being embossed, I cut an oval out from a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" piece of chipboard. I put this under the embossing folder. The sandwich for running this through the Sizzix Big Shot is Multipurpose Platform with all tabs down, chipboard, embossing folder with cardstock inside, and only one cutting platform. I got this technique from a friend on Utah Divas International Yahoo group but can't remember which one. Sorry. After embossing the shimmery cardstock, I inked the oval stamp with markers and stamped inside the oval. Then I stamped the horse-drawn sleigh with Basic Black ink. I love the results of the embossing and plain oval. To order the supplies needed for this card, visit my online store here.
