A Holiday Card



Happy Friday! Hope you've had a good week! I'm slowly but surely acknowledging that it's time to start making Christmas cards....Every year I resist until I have to scramble at the last minute...

I made this card last week when I received some new Cuttlebug folders in the mail. I love this Victoria folder and couldn't wait to make something with it. I ran the olive green paper through my Wizard in the folder and then took my Papertrey Ink Fresh Snow ink pad and ran it over the raised portions to make the background panel.

The main stamped image is from Flourishes' Birds and Vine set and was stamped in green and embossed with clear embossing powder then cut out with a Labels Four Nestabilities die. I colored the edge of the panel with a red foil pen then added the white dots to mimic the Papertrey Ink Scarlet Jewel Swiss Dot satin ribbon. I added some red Stickles to make berries on the vine.

The sentiment is from Repeat Impressions and was stamped with Scarlet Jewel ink and cut out using a Double Ended Tags die. The button and twine are from Papertrey Ink.

That's about it! Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!

GORGEOUS! love your paper and image, and sanding and how you dotted your border to match your ribbon, it must have taken a while to piece this beauty together.
Have a great weekend!
