What I decided to do is to make my own background by using stencils and the Gold and Silver Encore inks. This is what I wound up with after using the circles stencil with the Gold Encore ink and the stars stencil with the Silver Encore ink on Very Vanilla.
I wanted the images to be softer and less defined and so I spritzed it with the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz. That definitely softened the image and added a lot of glitz.
Then I used the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set to stamp three ornaments using the Versamark and Gold Embossing Powder. I'm so glad that the Ornament Keepsakes have been carried over into Augues. It's such a versatile stamp set, especially with the matching Framelits.
I also used a whole bunch of layers. My base is the Naturals Ivory to which I adhered a layer of Cherry Cobbler. Than I adhered the stamped and spritzed Very Vanilla to some Gold Foil. I mounted that layer to the others using dimensionals. Before I mounted that layer, however, I used some Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding ribbon to tie it up like a present.
Finally I mounted all the ornaments using dimensionals and stuck on my little sentiment using a couple of Glue dots.
And that's the card for this week's Christmas Card Challenge.
