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.
