Here 'tis.......

 Now that the ink has dried on the brayer (he he he), I thought I'd show you the full card that I teased you with the sneak peek of yesterday. 

I love the look of non-traditional colours on Christmas cards, and this one uses two of the new In Colours, Blushing Bride and Concord Crush. 

The technique that we learnt with this card is one that I've called Coloured Embossing Folders, though I'm sure that I'm not the first to use this technique, nor will it be the correct name.  All we did was load up the Concord Crush ink on the brayer, roll it over the negative side of the embossing folder, and then run it through the Big Shot normally.  The ink, because it is a water based ink, rinses straight off the embossing folder under running water, and then the folder is as good as new.

Card stock: Blushing Bride, Whisper White
Ink:  Blushing Bride, Concord Crush
Stamp: Christmas Classics
Embellishments: Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Concord Crush Stamp'n'Write marker, Dazzling Diamonds, Dimensionals, Blushing Bride Poly-Twill Ribbon.

Happy Stamping.......Manda
