For my final convention samples, I had to showcase a product suite. I was attributed the Be of Good Cheer one (which I was happy about because I love Christmas stuff).
On my first card, I wanted to try and creative the look of a concave opening in the ornament. My mom has some vintage ornaments she inherited from her parents that have "holes" like that in the center and those ornaments have always fascinated me. To recreate the look, I stamped the ornament twice: once in Versamark embossed in gold powder and a second time in Gumball Green. I punched a hole in the center of the green version and popped it up over the first ornament using Dimensionals so that the gold center would peer through the opening. I used gold embossing to create the hanger at the top as well, punched a hole in the center and threaded it with Cherry Cobbler baker's twine.
The Cherry Cobbler back piece was stamped repeatedly using the sentiment from the set, and I stamped off the ink on some of them to create two shades. I rounded the top corners using a punch and added a narrow strip of paper with a gold glimmer brad at the bottom.
The Vanilla background looks really cool and sparkly - but not in so much in the picture, unfortunately. I applied Versamark to one side of the embossing folder before running it through the Big Shot and I pourred Iridescent Ice powder on it to emboss the debossed part of the design.
