Holly & Globe

I have a couple of quick Christmas cards to share today...featuring an old Penny Black stamp called 'Holly & Globe'. I stamped it on to kraft card using Versmark Ink, then heat embossed it, along with a sentiment from a set by Lili of the Valley, using 'Metallic Gold' embossing powder by WOW. I matted these on to gold card, distressing the edges slightly, before adding some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a gold gel pen.

It's always so tricky to get a decent photo of anything metallic and shiny, but here's a view of the two cards together:

Challenges for these cards:
