Merry Christmas

Good morning everyone!  I hope you enjoyed the blog blitz last week. There are so many wonderful products in the holiday release, it was so hard to pick which ones to use. It seems that Trina and I chose the same products to use for our blog posts last week.  If you didn't get to see her beautiful card on Friday's blog post please check it out here.  Even though we used basically the same supplies and layout for our cards, it shows how different the outcome can be.

For my card I used a piece of the new foil paper and embossed it using the Snowy Forrest 3D embossing folder.  To reveal the embossed image a little better, I used a blending tool with a piece of steel wool on it. This is a tip I saw from a Tim Holtz video. This easily removes the top layer of foil and shows the paper underneath.

Next I trimmed my embossed piece and adhered it to a black cardstock mat.  I die cut the words Merry Christmas from red glitter paper and glued it to a strip of vellum paper. Then I wrapped the vellum strip around my card front and glued it to the back of my card.

I die cut a small circle from white cardstock and glued that to my card.  Next I die cut the Santa and sleigh from black cardstock and glued it over the moon.

Here's a photo that shows how shinny the card is.  

To finish I added a red rhinestone to Rudolph's nose and some black bling to the side of the vellum strip.

I hope you enjoyed today's card!  Thanks for stopping by.

Love the sanding of the foil, gives such a great touch to the background, love how you added the red nose, great detail!

What a difference a little sandpaper makes on your card. Beautiful card Donna!
