"Holiday Wishes" card using Graphic 45's Time to Flourish

Hello Crafty Friends!  How are your holiday cards coming along?  My card stash is slowly growing and now I am trying to use up some of the leftover patterned paper from other cards.  Today's card was created almost entirely from leftover scraps- excluding the card base and the checkered green background.  Feels great to use those scraps!

Crafty Steps:
Use Pen Touch marker to create gold pearls.  (refer to technique here)
Create Kraft tent fold card base.  Cut patterned papers and Kraft card stock to size. Assemble as shown.

Dye seam binding using Distress Stain.

Apply Stickles to leaves, flowers, etc. Adhere pearls, ribbon, twine and button 

Easy peasey!  Another festive card for this holiday season.

Crafty goodies used for this card:
Graphic 45's Time to Flourish papers and scrap patterned paper
Kraft card stock
Seam binding, Distress Stain (Barn Door and Festive Berries)
Stickles, Twine, Pearls, Pen Touch gold marker, antique metal button

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you have a happy crafty day!
Big Hugs,
Kathy Jo
