Merry and Type Take 1

I have several versions of cards made with the Merry & Type stamp set I will be sharing the next few days. This card I made as a couple of Thank You's for some trades I did with a couple of fellow demos. I think I was into this color combo as the card I shared the other day was similar. I'm not sure how well the photo to the right shows this but I dry embossed the image shape (from the back) to give the ornaments a bit of dimension to them. They have this cool 3-d effect to them. I also add some shimmer paint to them to give them a little extra shine. In person it just looks sooo much cooler. Happy Stamping!!

Ooo, Carmen, I'll bet those look really cool IRL! Love the idea of embossing from the back to give more dimension!

I can see the glimmer but not the dry embossing - I'll bet it looks great in person!

Fun cards! I can just imagine how sparkly these ornaments are in real life!
