Christmas Doves

Welcome to Sparkle N Sprinkle's November 1 Reveal.

This month FIVE new stamp sets are being introduced.   These sets are 20% off their regular price, until November 3rd.  All the new reveal sets are available on Cling Mounted Rubber and as a digital image.  Finn's Scarf, set #671 is the stamp set featured in  This Month's Technique Video.

The sets are:

Christmas Doves #649   (digi version DIGI649)
Brighten the Holidays #663   (digi version DIGI663)
Finn's Scarf #671  (digi version DIGI671)
Woofie Under the Christmas Tree #672   (digi version DIGI672)
Birthday Friends #673   (digi version DIGI673)

For my card I chose to use the sweet Christmas Doves stamp set. I used the digital format. What is so nice about digitals is that you can make the images any size to fit your project. I have had this embossing folder lying around for some time now with an idea in mind and finally I used it for this card. I used Mirror Silver card stock and swiped the raised areas with Saddle Brown Staz On ink.

Here is the card opened. For the background I used Sticker Paper, peeled off the top layer and added Gypsy Red velvet glitter GM2005 on it. I love the soft velvety look of this glitter.

On the doves I patted Versa Mark ink over them and added Sparkle embossing powder EP107.
