Heart of Christmas

Dec Thurs Challenge 006I bet you’ve seen this designer paper before on my blog.  Yep…LOVE this print.  So this week on Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge we have a cool sketch challenge.  I was trying to figure out what to do with the sketch and I spied this paper.  LOVE it!  So I started in.

The base of the card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 Very Vanilla with the corners on the right side rounded.  I took a piece of this wonderful dp and added to the card front.  I took a piece of Early Espresso and used the Finishing Touches Edglit on it, added a strip of Champagne Glimmer strip then added to the card front.  I stamped the greeting on a piece of Very Vanilla (with the corners rounded) using Lucky Limeade and Early Espresso ink.  I stamped the one line again using Early Espresso on Lucky Limeade, cut into a banner and added to the tag.  Well…here was the dilemma.  I needed a really cool ribbon but did not have anything.  I had been playing around with making paper bows from the “That’s a Wrap” MDS designer kit.  LOVE it!  Anyway, I shrunk one down to make this ADORABLE little bow in Champagne Glimmer.  I then took a Designer Print Brad and embossed with Early Espresso Embossing powder.  This was added to the tag then the tag added to the card front using dimensionals.  To finish it off I used the Gold Glimmer pen on two of the largest Basic Pearls and added these to the card front.
