Jingle All the Way

Welcome!  Do you hear the Christmas bells ringing?  For this card I pulled out an old Bell stamp from Gina K's Very Merry Christmas set but used one of her newer sentiment stamps.  I simply used the stamps with Versamark and Gold EP on Red Velvet CS.  The sentiment was doubled embossed which gave it a raised look. I filled in the ribbons with a Gold Gel Pen.  I stamped and embossed the bells again on Gold Metallic CS which I fussy cut and popped up on the card.  I think this may be the first time to gold emboss on Gold Metallic paper.  The result was a very CAS card but a bit elegant.
I inked the edge of the red layer with Pilot Gold Marker....this is a great way to give a layered look to a card but with less weight for mailing.
