I wanted to keep my design clean and simple so I went with a gold and white theme and Gold Embossed my images for some added interest.
The dotted design in the images provides added interest without adding bulk or work to the cards.
For the first one, I die cut the card front with the Stitched Rectangle die before gold embossed the sentiment in the top right of the card front adding that adorable little bobble.
I also heat embossed two of the “swish” images at the bottom to create a kind of ground for my images.
Next I embossed the tree in Sparkle embossing powder ( very hard to photograph, LOL) and the deer in Gold.
Layering them with foam tape helped to add some depth to the images.
For the second card, I used the small snowflake stamp to create a fun and really simple background.
Matted with a gold background it really pops and coordinates beautifully with my flying reindeer also gold embossed.

Thanks so much for stopping in to visit, and wishing you happy stamping
