I stuck with heat embossing for my card and embossed the stars in Silver Pearl embossing powder which is a really pretty soft silvery-pearl look and I embossed the sentiment in Liquid Platinum embossing powder, which is probably my favorite metallic embossing powder.
I started by blending distress inks onto a panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock for my background. After that was finished, I set it aside to dry completely before embossing.
These images are from the Winter Village stamp set and I stamped and colored them with Copics, keeping to a red, brown and green color palette. The "lights" on the trees were embossed with the Silver Pearl EP. I cut the images with my Scan n Cut and also die-cut the (also NBUS) Stitched Hillside Backdrop Portrait die from white cardstock and set to work arranging everything. Once everything was glued onto the die-cut panel, I went back to the background and embossed all the stars, leaving a wee space for the moon.
The sentiment is from another NBUS set by Avery Elle and was used because it fit nicely in the available space! The whole panel was added to the background with foam tape and then adhered to a white top-fold card base. The windows and snow on the houses were coated with clear sparkle pen to add a bit of shimmer.
