Christmas Card & Gift Set

Merry Christmas all you Viva Las VegaStamps fans! 

Pinky here today with a gift and card project using the incredibly crisp and clear VLVS stamps!
I have been playing with enamel powders and decided to create not only a card 
but also a gift canvas. I cannot get over how incredibly clear the VLVS stamp even
while using embossing/enamel powders. See for yourself how clear it is. 
 For this card I 
1. Stamp the VLVS image onto cream card-stock using embossing ink.
2. Sprinkle gently using embossing enamel. 
3. Heat set using heat gun.
4. Trim out stamped image. 
5. Trim out 7X7 cardstock.
6. Coat card-stock with enamel ink and enamels.
7. Heat set entire page. 
8. Trim paper to proper size- use border punch to create decorative border. 
9. Using Miracle Tape-adhere stamped image to punched cardstock. 
10. Adhere metals to card corners.
11. Adhere card face to card base. 
I followed the same steps for the canvas pictured below except
instead of adhering it to the card base I adhered it to the canvas that
I had used embossing enamels on. Then I added the ribbons. 
When you want a clear stamped image, you know you can trust VLVS! 

Until next time!
