The bird is heat embossed using Gold Embossing Powder onto our Gold Foil Sheets for a simple tone on tone image but is quite striking.

And here are a couple more cards that are quick and easy to make. The first card uses non traditional colors and the Flurry of Wishes stamp set. And the second uses Santa’s Sleigh (142057) and the coordinating Framelits Dies (142078). You’ll find these sets in the Annual Catalog.
