My New Stamp

I bought one of the Christmas Bundles as I didn't have the Welcome christmas Set and of course I had to have another Christmas stamp set. I do like this set and wanted to do something a bit different with it so I dusted off my Medallion Stamp and combined the two. I embossed the Medallion Stamp with Black Embossing powder on Very Vanilla and then cut out the middle and embossed in gold the scene from the Welcome Christmas Set.  I then cut a Very Vanilla circle to accentuate the middle as it didn't stand out enough. The Very Vanilla is layered on Black and the actual card is SU Metallic Gold.
 I was really happy with the way it turned out but I was not very happy with the way I photographed it.. The lovely black and gold embossing doesn't show up all that well and the Very Vanilla looks white.
 Around each of the points I added some SU tiny pearls which look very sweet.
This is the inside which was just half of the Medallion embossed in Black and layered on Black cardstock


  1. Wow! What a stunning card. I really love to see fantastic ideas like this, especially the non-traditional colours on a Christmas card.

  2. Seriously how good is this? Love the use of the Medallion with the family - too good.

  3. Love the way you've used the Medallion with the Welcome Christmas image Sue - and all that embossing, such a nice finish! Love those little pearl touches too :o)

  4. This is a beautiful way to combine the two sets, I haven't seen this done before and it looks just great.
