AJVD / WOW! Blog Hop


Good morning! Today, the A Jillian Vance Design DT is hopping with the WOW! Design team! (hop details below).

For my first card, I started by blending Catherine Pooler Juniper Mist ink on a white panel, fading it out to white in the centre, to create a 'glow'.

When it was completely dry, I used WOW! Embossing ink to stamp the image from the Nativity Bookmark set and then I embossed it with WOW! Brass embossing powder.

To create a bit of a frame, I lightly inked the edges of the panel with the embossing ink and then used the same Brass powder.


For my second card, I found a piece of red vellum in my stash. I stamped the large Merry Christmas from Elegant Christmas on it and then embossed it with Metallic Platinum Sparkle powder. 

On a white cardbase, I stamped the poinsettias from the set with Catherine Pooler Twilight ink. Then I adhered the red vellum panel with liquid glue, which I placed just behind the letters of the embossed sentiment.

Loving that top card Ardyth - it's everything a Christmas card should be! The poinsettia card is also beautiful.

I was wondering how you'd got the "watermark" effect on the vellum - what a great idea to stamp on the base card underneath it.

Love the nativity scene at
the top of the verse.
The shading on the sides
is great. the red
card is spectacular. The
gold sentiment really pops.
