Going Green



Julia's Ways to Use It Challenge was to use green on a card, so I combined that with Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge for this week. I used a small note card sized template to create the small envelope. I combined stamps from 3 different sets to finish it off. I really went back to my stamping roots by gold embossing...I don't do it often anymore, but I loved the magic of heating powder to come up with the shiny embossing and wanted to do all the time on my early cards. I had no red rhinestones for the holly berries, so punched out some tiny circles and added Crystal Effects. It's a rainy day in VA and the furnace is running fairly often...guess it is November, but sure do hate to see the beautiful fall weather disappear!
STAMPS: Blessed Christmas (Verve) - poinsettia; Holiday Minis (SU) - holly leaves; All Year Cheer I (SU) - sentiment
PAPER: Shimmer Paper by K&Co, Old Olive, Vintage Cream, Metallic Gold
INK: Versamark, Old Olive
ACCESSORIES: Gold cord, MS holly border punch, Rhinestones, Copics, Circle punch
