A Christmas card Case

I had pinned a card to my pinterest board which used a Memory Box cutting die that I bought just recently.  So on Friday evening; I got to work and cased the card I had pinned.  The original card can be seen here.  Here is my card:

I used the die Glowing candles.  The gold glittered card stock is from my stash.  I dry embossed a piece of cream coloured card stock with my Swiss dots embossing folder.  The sentiment from CTMH was heat embossed using Stampendous Champagne Pearl Lustre embossing powder.  I added the maroon bow to give the card a pop of colour.  Unfortunately, the embossing on the die did not come out onto the glittered card stock so I will be remaking this card using gold card stock.

Here is the 2nd card I made:

This time I cut the die with gold card stock and the embossed detail of the die shows up much better.  I really like this card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Thank you Annette! I made another card but this time I did not use glitter paper. I will be posting it as soon as I put it all together and take a photo of it.
