Swirled in Riding Hood Red

What fun to use new stamp sets! And the best part of these new sets, they are die-cut - just pop them off the rubber and place them on your wood - no more cutting! So I took this new set Snow Swirled, which is on special until September 30th, make sure to check out current promotions. I inked my tree in Riding Hood Red and then again in VersaMark, just slightly off the original image. I sprinkled some Silver Embossing Powder on top and heated up my image. A little luster to my tree. Also added some non-SU rhinestones (difficult to see in this picture) and one blue Circle Ice Rhinestone to top off my tree. I used my bone folder to kreated score lines around my image and then I sponged Riding Hood Red all around my tree (looked to stark in whisper white). I placed the image up on dimensionals and placed it on Riding Hood Red base. For my faux metal embellishment, I inked up my stamp, from Punches Three(hostess lev 1), in VersaMark and stamped it on a piece of Brushed Silver paper and heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. Punched out the 'embellishment' with my new Scallop Square Punch added the Horizontal Punch on each side and threaded the new Riding Hood Red Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and 'cinched' it up.

For now, go kreate

Is this ever pretty?! I love, love, love what you did with the ribbon.

Was the faux metal embossing difficult? It looks awesome on your card.
