I'm trying to make Christmas cards, now that it's crunch time! I must confess, I bought a couple of boxes of cards while I was out shopping on Black Friday. Seems every year I think I am going to make all my cards, but it just does not happen. The cards that I blog are too embellished to mail, I use them for people I am going to give a gift to so I can hand deliver them. I must work on making cards that can be mailed with a regular postage stamp......can make that my New Year's resolution, along with losing weight and getting more organized, my standard ones.........
Here's where you put your sunglasses on, because this card has bling!
Today's card is for the challenge at Penny Black and Friends Saturday Challenge #179, and the challenge is to use Christmas+Red+Embossing.
My card recipe
Stamp - Penny Black - Simply Ornamental
The red and white striped paper is a die. I used it at my local
stamp store. This is a5x7 inch card, so it is a big die. I will find out who makes them
and update this post.
The Christmas tree is holographic foil which I embossed.
and the gold star garland, both from the dollar store.
The stars where cut using a sizzix die, then I ran them through an embossing folder.
Stamped the sentiment and embossed with white embossing powder on red mirror paper.
Colored the image with Copic Markers
I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
