The Gel Press and Christmas Card Backgrounds

Time to get inky with my Gel Press and Christmas card backgrounds.  I decided to play with re-inkers and some embossing folders.  Here is what backgrounds look like:

Nothing that amazing to start- pretty simple too.  Let’s start with the video tutorial that shows you how to make the backgrounds.  Grab your gel press, some holiday colored re-inkers and someday dry embossed layers!

The end results of the gel press and Christmas card backgrounds are the best part. Creating with them is fun and sometimes challenging.  I just realized I forgot to add the sentiment to this Llama card!  On the inside it goes!

Another llama card with non traditional Christmas colors. Mostly because he is so cute.   See his blanket?  it is made from the coffee first dies.  The cozy is the perfect fit!
