PPA186 Happy New Year

Happy New Year! I have loved the rest and relaxation I've had the past few days. After cleaning up from Christmas, I organized some of the places in the house that were long-neglected with all the activity during Christmas. I found the desktop in my studio!!

This week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge uses the colors Island Indigo, Gold and Whisper White. I hope you can see my Gold Foil paper--it's really hard to photograph!

I began with a Whisper White card stock base, then added a layer of Island Indigo card stock. On top of that, a layer of Gold Foil that I embossed using my Big Shot and the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder.  

I used the Teeny Tiny Wishes sentiment by isolating each word using my VersaMark pen on Island Indigo card stock. I embossed each word with Whisper White embossing powder. I used the Mosaic punch to punch out the words and mounted them onto the Gold Foil using Stampin' Dimensionals. This card will be a "thank you" card for Christmas gifts received.

I hope your year has been fun and fantastic so far. I'd love for you to leave your comments below--I read each one!

Wow, Patti, that Mosaic Madness embossing folder creates such a striking background when used on the gold foil paper! Beautiful!

Patti, you did such an excellent job photographing the foil, not an easy task. You were so clever to isolate the three words on the teeny tiny wishes stamp. This card is a WOW!

Patti, that hold is difficult to photograph but you did a great job! I love it embossed! I'm still putting Christmascaway so you're more progresses than me by far!
