Beautiful Christmas Stamps #406 &407

A person never knows how a card will turn out.  I started with just that foil banner that I had cut from a scrap.  I have that beautiful embossing folder from Coutre Creations and it embossed that foil card stock beautifully.  After trying a couple of things that just looked blah, I decided to use my sold stand by cuttlebug embossing folder on some highly glittered white card stock.  mmmm…I love that.  I distressed that beautiful music stamp from Mark’s Finest Papers (retired set) and wrapped it with gold cord.  It still looked a little not quite done.  I wanted to add the holly leaves but didn’t want them plain white and the colored ones just threw off the entire color scheme.  hmmm…what to do?  I saw my Clear Star pen in my holder and that was the perfect answer for some frosty looking holly and I used my gold gel pen for the berries.  Now it looks so much more finished, but still lacking something.  Enter the pearlized Candies up there in the corner.  I am so in love with this creation.  It’s one of those you want to keep because you created it, and you like it so much.  but then…if I mail it, the enjoyment will be extended because I get to enjoy the creation of it and someone else will also enjoy it.  Yes, I think I will mail it.  I am entering this into Simon Says Anything goes challenge for Monday.


  1. Fabulous Christmas card and I love the pop of gold which makes it look so elegant! Thank you for joining us over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog and wishing you a very happy festive season! :)

  2. Wow! It really came together perfectly. It is shimmery and fabulous! I enjoyed hearing how you adding this but still not done, so then you added that but still not done..... you got it to the perfect point.
