CAS Mix Up EB Folder Reminder

Time for CAS Mix Up EB Folder Reminder Cards!
Already mid-month,  but you still have until the 24th to play along!

More beautiful Embossing Folder cards by our talented Design Team
and special Guest Designer,  Cornelia (Stempel Spass).

Using Embossing Folder die cut frame, Watercolor Stamping and Heat Embossing.

Sharing Close Up of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on Frame and main image!

I began my CAS design by die cutting Mixed Media paper using the 
largest and 2nd largest Penny Black Antique Frames.

Next I placed frame in Sizzix Softly Falling EB Folder for a snow effect.
Then stamped frame with Clear Versamark and added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.
Very pretty sparkly raised snow flake frame.

Then I placed the inside piece from the die cut frame into MISTI.
I used only about 1/2 of the Penny Black "winter still" image.

Painted the stem with Distress Ink and spritzed with water and stamped in MISTI.
Moved ink with wet paint brush. 
Then did the same with red berries and leaves using Distress Inks and paint brush.

When done I wanted darker leaves so did the same painting technique with Zigs.
Also added some brown to the berries.
Next stamped sentiment.

Then I had the bright idea to add Versamark to the entire image and sprinkle
with Dazzling Diamond like the frame. 
Then added more Versamark and Clear EB powder and heat embossed.
More pretty sparkling snow effect for a Christmas card.

Popped up frame with foam tape and Inlaid my main image.
I was very happy with my Christmas card:-)

Wishing you a Joyful Holiday season my friends.  Hugs..
