Flying Santa...

Happy Thursday,

The same die as yesterday however a different treatment today I've used it round an oval rather than a circle and this time in gold and white.

I stamped the centre panel using my Christmas Scene and festive silhouettes clear stamp sets in gold Izink pigment ink pads.  To get the gold so strong I used the press to impress which allowed me to layer the gold on three times to get the intensity.

I mounted this behind an oval aperture, cut with the press cut stitch dot ovals which I had embossed with the crafts too falling snow embossing folder.  I added the snowflake die around the aperture in gold and topped this with the same cut in white.  I added back the snowflakes that fall away in gold with pearls on top.  I used different sizes of pearls around the remainder of the oval.
I added a bow of gold cavort and thin white satin ribbon with one of the snowflakes in the centre.

I made up the card as shown with layers of white, gold glazed white ( new card available on Hochanda on the 30th November) and gold card.
