Joyous Noel card using Spellbinders Branching Out dies

Happy Monday!

The Spellbinders die set Branching Out arrived on Friday...Woot-Woot!  I went through my scrap bin and played with the three dies.  What a fantastic set and the little leftover bits of paper easily come out of the dies.  Super sweet.

I realized after looking at my die cuts and bits of scrap that I had a Christmas card almost complete- the branching out base was done, the green paper and woodgrain papers were cut and the ribbon bow was a practice ribbon I had done last week.  Cool!  
Now all I needed was a focal point...enter JustRite's Noel Christmas Ornament.  I stamped it in red then embossed it in red glitter powder.  I do not have pigment green ink to match the bow or paper so I used a darker green color, stamped it out once on a piece of scrap paper then stamped it on the ornament.  Voila!  Lighter shade of green.  To finish it off I distressed the edges and added faux stitches.  
Hope you like the card!  It was so fun to make.  Another Christmas card done...YAY!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your wonderful comments!

Have a wonderful week.
