"Tidings of Comfort" Christmas (in July!) card

Hello Crafters!

BIG, EXCITING NEWS!  I am a 3 month Guest Designer For Scrapyland Challenges! Today I am sharing my first card as a GDT member.  The challenge is Anything Goes using dies from a manufacturer that Scrapyland sells.  I thought I would really do an AG project by making a Christmas card.  
The tent fold white card base had the largest die from Spellbinders Triple Floral added to the front.  Distress ink in Weathered Wood was applied to the edges.  A piece of white card stock was cut to size, had Distress Stain in Weathered Wood applied to the entire piece and then I took a toothbrush and added white acrylic paint in strips.  A white doily (Cheery Lynn's French Pastry) was added and three banners from scrap My Mind's Eye All is Bright paper.
Quietfire's "Tidings of Comfort and Joy" was stamped in coffee Adirondack ink, cut to size and adhered on top of red burlap.
A piece of hardboard was die cut using Sizzix's poinsettia die and heat embossed using white embossing powder with glitter three times.  It resulted in a thick coating of white glitter powder.  The center of the poinsettia had glue and fine red beads (Recollections) applied.  Distress ink in Gathered Twigs was applied to the edges.
Two vertical ribbons were added and the card was done!  Another Christmas card ready for this year.  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I really appreciate it!  And a big thank you to Scrapyland for having me as a Guest Designer!
Big Crafty Hugs,
Kathy Jo
