I am old enough to remember the original Mission Impossible TV series and have had this theme song running through my head since I saw the title of this challenge (thank you Lauren!)
So now maybe you will too! Pretty catchy, huh! Even Kirby liked it.
Okay, back to my card. I dry embossed the background panel with Sizzix Poinsettia embossing folder. I used a VersaMark pen on the edges of that panel and added some gold embossing powder.
Then I stamped the images from Watercolor Christmas in VersaMark ink and also embossed them with the gold ep. Then I fussy cut the images out. I actually stamped each image twice and only used the center of the second flower popped up to give the flower some more dimension.
I found some cool lace in the Target $ bin last weekend which I used here. I think the only thing, well, two things I would have/should have done was find some gold beads for the center of the flower and add a sentiment on the upper left-hand corner but I can always do that later.
You can see the sparkle a little better in the picture below. I only used Very Vanilla cardstock on the whole card popping the embossed panel up on the backing which was kind of necessary as the lace folded over the edge was a little bulky.
I'll be back with a second card before the two-week deadline. Your mission.....should you decide to accept it, is to leave a comment on the Jingle Belles blog (and/or here). "As always, should you or any of your I.M. Force be caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions." This post will self-destruct in five seconds. Good luck.
