Friday Feature.. The wait is over

At last the wait is over Lindsay Masons 2016 Christmas Sweet Dixie Stamp Collection from Personal Impressions is about to hit a store near you. Thank you to Personal Impressions I feel Blessed to be able to bring this to you all in the Spirit of Christmas.

Christmas can be a busy time for all of us and I am always looking for ways to create something that can serve a double purpose.
Today I have created a *Gift Card* a card that also carries a gift. Using Lindsays' Sweet Dixie *Glory to the Newborn King* stamp set, please click here if you wish to see the set.

If quick cards are your thing or need to make one in a hurry this project is perfect for you.

The Large stable image and twinkling star have both been stamped onto Black Centura Pearl card with versamark embossing ink and heat embossed using Pirate Gold embossing powder by Stampendous. The embossed image has been mat and layered onto antique gold card and glued onto a DL card.

The star has been stamped and embossed again and a glass heart cabochon glued on top. When dry the heart was trimmed and glued into a matching sized pendant bezel.
The pendant has been attached to the star on the DL card using removable glue.
I chose to turn the pendant into a key ring by adding a split ring but cord or chain could easily be used to make a wearable pendant.

There is room for a sentiment on this card but I quite liked the simplicity of it and felt the image spoke for itself.
Thank you for sharing your time with me, I hope you have been inspired.

Creative Hugs from Tracey. Have a wonderful weekend xxx
