How fun was this card to make, lots of stamping, cutting, embossing, layering and Using It Up of course! The Ho Ho Ho down the front of the card was on a little peice of scrap that I just couldn’t bear to throw out – I knew I’d Use It Up somewhere! lol
The sentiment used was given to me by another crafter last year and has been floating around in my Christmas drawer since then.
I have actually been naughty this week and must confess….I bought some stuff instead of Using it Up and blew my pledge! My local craft shop is closing down (boo hoo, we’ll miss Jackie terribly), anyway, there was a HUGE sale happening to clear the stock out of the shop and suffice it say – I helped !
The stamps I used here were one of the items I purchased (at 50% discount – no resisting that). It’s a Papertree set of Christmas stuff and I just love it!
I’ve decorated the inside of the card too. Used up the little scrap of dp left over and stamped another of the stamps in the set inside.
Check out all the gems – 52 Christmas Card Throwdown will love this card for their first embellishment challenge – Lots of Gems here girls!
I also had been dying to use this little present ribbon topper. I picked up a whole packet of these in different colours last year and this present stamp is the perfect size for them! The present and the glasses are both popped up on dimensionals. A little silver chord was tied into bows for the glasses too.
I’ve also done a bit of embossing on this card, the white card was embossed with snowflakes and the red paper was embossed with flourishes.
This card is entered in the following challenges;
When your done pop over to My Blog Candy post if you’d like a chance to win some goodies.
Have a great day!
