It may be far from the holidays, but sometimes you never know where the inspiration is going to hit! I started off with the Happy Holiday stencil and some glittery Core-dinations glittery cardstock. I embossed the stencil with silver embossing paste. I tore the bottom of the cardstock for some added texture.
Next, I used one of my favorite stencils, the Houndstooth. I used Core-dinations cardstock for this too, and I ran the it, along with the stencil though my Big Shot machine. Then, I sanded the raised image to show off the houndstooth pattern. I also rubbed a bit of clear embossing ink around the edge of my card and used some bright silver embossing powder for added shine and texture.
Last, I decided to add a big, scrumptious bow to the card by using a gorgeous metallic green ribbon from May Arts. I like using funky colors for the holidays, and this would go really nicely with how I decorate my Christmas tree! I hope you like my offering for today.
