Hi there! Christmas is coming and I have a ton of Christmas cards still to be made. For todays card I played with seedless preserved and prize ribbon Distress spray stain to create my card base. I then heat embossed some swirl from Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous The Poinsettia stamp set with kitsch flamingo Distress embossing glaze, I darkened edges with ground espresso Distress Oxide ink and I splattered with clean water, picket fence and antique bronze Distress paint. I also added some white matte Distress paste through Sparkle layering stencil. I cut the cute elf from Sizzix Thin Ice die set several time from Idea-ology Blackout paper pad, I sended it a bit and I put everything together. Sentiment is from a Lawn Fawn stamp set. I hope you like it.
