OK, OK, here's a card finally! My desk is all cleaned off and neat so I had to make a card today before getting back to my scrapbook table for the evening. I decided to try my hand at the Pals Paper Arts sketch and used the Paper Players color challenge while I was at it. Thought I could probably use a few more Christmas cards and love finding non-Christmas sets to use and experiment with.
The embossing is done with the new Pewter embossing powder from the Holiday Mini. Until I see it side by side with Silver I'm not sure I see a difference. Poo! Like my holly leaves? Made them myself! Started with the large oval punch then punched chunks out with a 1" circle punch. Then flipped them over and, while on the squishy mat from the Crafter's Tool Kit, drew lines with a pencil, making sure to go over them a few times for the embossed look. Actually turned out better than I expected! My sentiment tag is 4 pack sizzlit set called Lots of Tags.
Here's a quick peek at the inside. I had this vanilla piece that was a bit too short so added a few layers of dotted scallop trim and some more Ridinghood Red taffeta ribbon to finish it off.
