Season's Greeting Christmas Cards

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by here, for today I am sharing some Christmas cards that I have created with some of the new release products from 
Artdeco Creations - Couture Creations - Ultimate Crafts -
"It's Beginning to look like Christmas".  




All the products I used to create these cards are listed at the end 
of this blog post.

Together with the Go Press and foil Machine, I will be showing some techniques with foiling and stamping. I created a couple of cards which I will share at the end of my blog post today but today I have a step by step tutorial for my first card. I wanted to show you all how you can incorporate some foiling and stamping on your projects. They really work fabulously together, I am sure you will love the effect it gives.
So here is my card for today.


"Season's Greetings" by Adriana Bolzon




Details and close ups photos of the pine-cones and foiling cluster on my card.



Using the 
It's Beginning to look like Christmas" 
Cardinal Feathers ULT158337 Hot-foil stamp  along with
Couture Creations - Go Press and foil Machine

I foiled the Cardinal Feathers ULT158337 hot foil stamp twice,
 back to back with my favourite Foil colour
Rose Gold Vintage Matte CO725694 using the Go Press and foil Machine.



 Using the pine leave stem stamp from the 
"It's beginning to look like Christmas" 
 "Cardinal & Poinsettia" ULT158303 stamp set.

I stamped over the foiled images with a green inked.




Then using the pinecone stamp from the 
"It's beginning to look like Christmas" 
 "Cardinal & Poinsettia" ULT158303 stamp set.

I stamped these on white card stock, cut them out and inked the edges.
Creating a cluster of pinecones and leaves with the
Couture Creations "Let Everyday Be Christmas" 
Christmas Branches decorative die C0725508

Adding a bit of twine and Red Gemstones around the cluster.



Finishing off the card with another foiled sentiment using the
It's Beginning to look like Christmas-ULT158335 
Season's Greetings hotfoil stamp, using the Go Press and Foil Machine. This a fabulous one to buy as it comes with two hot foil stamps. This set and candle could be used for other occasions.




Matting the foiled sentiment on to a piece of 
Matte Bronze Mirror Foil card stock CO725408
and also
adding another stamped image on the pine leaves on the side.





As promised more Christmas cards created with the same stamps and
Hot foil stamps together with the Go Press and Foil Machine.





and here is another one
just using the stamps no foiling.
