Color Burst Christmas Cards and Video!

Hi friends! I've been in the mood for Christmas card making, so I'm back today to share a couple cards and a video using some amazing Color Burst powders! We got some snow over the weekend, and the girls and I sat at the kitchen table listening to Christmas music and making cards - so fun!

I layered on some patterned papers from my stash, first sponging around the edges with Distress Inks. I love that cute Echo Park deer paper!

Then I used white embossing powder to emboss my sentiment background image using a stamp from The Old Island Stamp Company, which is in BC Canada on watercolour paper. I tapped on some Color Burst powders in Turquoise, Lime and Fuchsia and spritzed with water - you can see how beautifully these blend in the video below!

I added a flower embellishment and some gorgeous sequins from the NEW Holly Berries mix from SpiegelMom Scraps!

Inside, I used a Christams stamp from Inkadinkado, added some Distress Ink around the edge and used sparkly Gelly Roll pens to colour the stars.

You can see the video where I show you how I create this beautiful card here! Don't forget to like and subscribe ;)

Here's a look at these two pretty cards together. You can see how each time you'll get a different background even using the same colours. You can find this NEW lovely Holly Berries sequin mix at the SpiegelMom Scraps Shop - I'm planning on using these on many more projects!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you're enjoying a wonderful, crafty week!
