The winner receives $25 gift certificate.

Here is my take on the challenge.

I decided to make Christmas cards early. So I can decide on 5 designs to mass produce them. 

This card has two techniques involved - Masking and Heat Embossing. I have used washi tapes to randomly mask the white cardstock leaving some white cardstock exposed. Then rubbed versamark over them making sure to cover the exposed white cardstock. Covered the area with coloured embossing powder. I have used red colour. Heat emboss the powder. Then remove the tapes and you get these beautiful graphic embossed stripes. I also tried using green embossing powder and cut a couple out and layered on the red. This give the Christmas feel to the card. Imagine the possibilities!!! So many colours combos for so many occassions.
I love how my card turned out. Hope you do too!
