MC Oct/15 - ECD Season's Greetings - Winter Scene - Xmas Waves'sGreetings_WinterScene_XmasWaves.htmlI got this new stamp from Impression Obsession "CAC Winter Scene" and of course had to use it right away... On the front it's painted and on the inside I used colored pencils.

PS: this card uses the gold contact paper and not Becca's technique...

Then there's that gold border around the circles... Becca Feeken from Amazing Paper Grace blog was using a Minc machine to get great gilded borders around open work die cuts... You can see her post HERE. I knew in the back of my mind my hot laminator could do something similar, so I went about testing it out... Yes it does do the foil technique but definitely not as good as Becca got...

Basically you definitely need a really good black and white laser print. My printer is old, the rollers are grungy and my cartridge is over 3 years old... So I've ordered a new Laser printer hoping to get really good prints. I'm going to try printing something at work and also doing a photo copy to see if those will work better with my laminator. I have a GBC 9" Document Laminator. So I will continue to experiment...'sGreetings_WinterScene_XmasWaves.htmlBut for my card I used shiny gold contact paper I picked up in one of those dollar stores eons ago (ps it cost more than a dollar...) and the Spellbinders Standard Circles small and large sets. Love the results.

Anyway, you can see all the details and descriptions by clicking on any card image. Enjoy.

I'm using a Quietfire Design quote stamp on the inside.

Thanks for linking up at Crafty Ribbons Challenges. Unfortunately the current challenge is "reindeer and ribbon" so this card doesn't qualify. It is however a totally scrummy card!
