Kraft Embossed Christmas Card


September 1st...Geez!  Where did the time go?  I guess the saying "Time flies when you are having fun" applies to this summer.  It has been a fun one!

Talking abut summer winding down, did you know there are only 114 days until Christmas?  Yes, I am still working on my Christmas card stash and I have to remind myself every so often about how much time is remaining until the big day.  :)

This time I made a card with a new embossing folder- Couture Creations Reindeer Silhouette.  Kraft paper was dry embossed and Distress Ink in Walnut Stain was applied.  Stickles was added to the stars.
Tim Holtz' All Good Wishes was stamped in white and heat embossed.
The edges of the embossed paper was distressed and ink applied.  It was mounted on white paper and then mounted on the largest die from Spellbinders' Branching Out set.  A white tent fold base was made as shown below.  The ribbon (so cute!) was the finishing touch.
Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you all have a fabulous Monday!
