It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas........well, at least in my craft room it is! I haven't started decorating or anything crazy like that yet but do need to get a few cards done so they'll be ready to mail in December. I've made several during the year and now it's time to kick it up and notch and "git 'r done".
First of all......see that embossing folder!!! Sweet, sweet Mary over at Carolina Cards By Mary H. sent me several of these after I commented on her lovely blog. I've searched far and wide and can't find the folder (discontinued) but do love the look of the dots since it reminds me of snow. Check out Mary's blog when you get a chance - and thank you again so very much!
The stamp I used is a recent purchase and made by Stampabilities. Perfect for the upcoming holidays. I stamped it with Copics and then framed it out in gold. Very CAS look even though it has the layers. Now, the best part.......I also recently purchased a Wink of Stella pen. OMGoodness!!!! That thing is just sensational!! I got it in the clear - but am really thinking I need one in gold and what ever other colors they have!!! I used it on the berries on the wreath and also the red part of the bow. It really shines - but sadly you can't see it in the photo. Maybe I just need to send a card like this to all of y'all so you can see the shine!!!
I'll enter this in the challenge at Simon Says Stamps (anything goes), Addicted to Stamps and More (Clean and Simple), and Inky Impressions (Traditional Christmas).
Thanks for stopping by........
