Just Us Girls #217 - One Layer Winter Themed Card

It's Wild Card Week over at Just Us Girls because it's the 5th Saturday of the month.  That means that the hostess gets to choose any challenge she wishes.  Nancy chose to challenge us to create a one layer project with a winter theme.  Great challenge for me!
 
I had an idea to use this Jingle Bell Border die from Memory Box.  I thought I could use the negative piece as my stencil and cover it with embossing paste.  Great idea, but some of it smooshed out and made a little mess in the middle.  So then I tried Versamark ink and gold embossing powder, and that worked like a charm!  I repeated the embossing of the sentiment and that was it!  Done! 


Check out all the fabulous one layer creations by the JUGs design team!

This is gorgeous with such a WOW effect! At first look I thought it was an embossed stamp, very creative of you to use the negative space of the die.
