Sending Christmas Cheer

Happy Saturday everyone!

I thought that the My Monthly Hero kit this month was fabulous! I particularly loved the stamp set and knew I wanted NEEDED it! Anyway, the parcel landed on my doorstep this week and today was the first chance I had to play with it!

I embossed the tree with a gorgeous teal glitter embossing powder that I received from a friend today. Just look at that sparkle! I cut it out with one of the matching dies in the kit and then attached a smaller sentiment tag which I had made using an older Hero Arts stamp and a Spellbinders die. I was pretty chuffed to see that some old ribbon that I had bought in Michaels years ago matched the colour of the embossing powder perfectly!

I spent a little while trying to figure out the background. I knew it needed a little ‘something’ but I also wanted to keep the card quite CAS. I tried a dry embossed background but that seemed a little ‘heavy’ so in the end, I applied some glitter paste through a stencil – really love how much this card sparkles!

I’m entering this into the current Casology challenge which has the cue word of ‘cheer’.

Thanks for stopping by!
