A Very Merry Christmas

I joined a second Holiday Mini swap with my GSG friends and used Scandinavian Season this time. The second group was smaller, so I was able to use embellishments that I only have a limited number of (like the Styled Silver Hodgepodge hardware and rhinestone brads) on this card.

I love this striped patterned paper from the Holiday Treasures DSP package, and I picked the other colors to match. The vellum was placed on top of the DSP and I adhered it in spots where it wouldn’t be noticed, like behind the tree and the sentiment.

I silver embossed the tree on Always Artichoke card stock, which may be hard to see in the picture. The red flower and sentiment were stamped with Ruby Red Craft ink and clear embossed.

Thanks for stopping by!
