CardMaker- Impression Obsession Blog Hop!!

Hello Everyone!!!
Welcome to CardMaker - Impression Obsession Blog Hop!!
Today we ( CardMaker Blog team) are joining with IO team for  festive blog hop.

If you are here from Anna Wight's blog you are on the right track, if you are just joining me now please visit CardMaker  blog to start from the beginning.

I have two cards to share with you all.
I used IO- Holiday Top Word Edgers dies and IO-Cover-a-Card Nordic Stripes stamp for my cards  today.

First one is non-traditional holiday card with bright colors.
It reminds me of Indian textiles or Sarees.
I heat embossed the Cover-a-Card Nordic Stripes background on three colors of cardstock using three different WOW embossing powders. Then trimmed narrow strips and adhered them to make new fun background.
Orange+ Gold EP
Red+ Silver EP
Hot Pink+ Pastel Pink EP

I diecut the sentiment out of black cardstock and adhered it to white glittered cardstock.
The background is so rich in colors , I just added three tiny matching Doodlebug rhinestones .

This card is for the following challenges...
Christmas Card Challenges -Anything Goes + Christmas
Stempelsonnen Challenge - Anything Goes.
Stamping Sensations - Simply Christmas.

Next one is CAS card...can be easily mass produced in different colors.
Simply heat embossed the background using WOW white EP.
Diecut the sentiment in a slight angle out of glittered cardstock, adhered it on a vellum layer.
Easy , peasy one!!!
I'll make a few more of this design in different colors.

This card is for the following challenges...
Polkadoodles -  Nordic Christmas.

Hope you all like these cards!!!
