Happy New Year!
Tomorrow is Lunar (Chinese) New Year and the beginning of the year of the Horse. I'm well prepared for this occasion, with a whole drawerful of horse stamps!
Red and gold are lucky colours in Chinese design. I embossed my Deadbeat Designs abstract horse and (awesome!) sentiment in gold on red mirror cardstock. I used an embossing buddy to ensure minimal stray embossing powder. I had to 'buff' the panel to get the extra embossing buddy-stuff off after, but I'm pretty happy with my first try at embossing on mirror card! I made the cardbase out of red mirror card.
