Demonstrator Starter Kit Bells and Boughs Holiday Mini


Good Morning To All.  We made it to Friday and we will soon be well into our week end.  Yippie!!!!  Today I have a Christmas Card to share with you.  I got the idea from another blog, but I must apolize I don't remember where.  My cardbase is a piece of Cherry Cobber, just one of my favs.  My next layer may surprise you but it worked.  I didn't have any designer paper from the beautiful Deck The Halls and I fell in love with the music notes paper.  So I got to work and  I cut myself a piece of News Print DP and took a sponge to it.  I used Always Artichoke Ink and sponged till I got it dark enough to resemble the piece in Deck the Hall DP.  Then I took the holly stamp from Bells and Boughs and stamped a few time to add some background.  I bet at first glance you couldn't even tell.  My focal point is stamped in Cherry Cobbler from the same set and mounted on a piece of Very Vanilla.  I used my nesties here but if you have the retired Cozzule Set that would work just fine.  I stamped another piece of the holly on Very Vanilla, colored it with a marker and then cut it out and used a dimensional to mounted it on top.  Added a few pearls and some 1/2" Cherry Cobber Seam Binding Ribbon.  TIP:  To get the all scrunched up look on your ribbon I took a piece of thread and stitched down the middle of my ribbon and ruffled it up until I liked it.  I also had a piece of 1/8" Score Tape already on my card so I could tape it down as I ruffled.  Easy Peasy.  I hope you enjoyed this pretty Christmas Card and if you need any of the supplies to make this card please shop in my on-line store for any of these supplies.  Thanks for stopping by today and chatting with me.  I am looking forward to the new Occasion Mini.  OMG it is full of cute stuff.  Have a wonderful day.  Toodles
