Another challenge at Sassy Cheryl's!
I so enjoyed the last challenge that I did at Sassy Cheryl's, that I just HAVE TO do another! and LUCKY ME, my card was chosen at random to receive a 5.00 store credit! So I was able to buy some Sassy Cheryl digis! YAY ME! Love her digis! SOOO this time, I have some sassy cheryl digis to use on my card,,,,,it was tough choosing, believe me, but this little HO HO HO stamp just called to me,,,,,
the minute I saw it, I KNEW what I was going to do with it, and what paper I was going to use,,,,,,,,I wanted to create a card that was sort of country Cristmas-ish, and I hope I've done that!
The challenge at SC's is to use embossing on your card,,,,either dry or wet. I've chosen dry embossing here, and embossed the cream and burgundy paper with a Tim Holtz "snow flurries" embossing folder. I inked everything, colored the image with copics in what I HOPE are complimentary, country Christmas-ish colors, cut it out with long rectangles large, nested over long rectangles scalloped large, wrapped some twine around it, popped on a checked ribbon, tied on a sleigh bell, a hand made stick pin, some fancy gold corner embellishments, and a quick sentiment (Merry Christmas!) from JustRite stampers,,,,I used my HAPPY EVERYTHING tag making kit to cut that out, and it's done!
and I LOVE it,,,,,,it's exactly what I was thinking in my head,,,,and that doesn't happen too often!
Admittedly, this card won't mail easily,,,,either I'll hand deliver it to my neighbor across the street,,,,or I'll use a flexible clear plastic envie and pay the extra postage for being too thick.
But that sleigh bell was calling to me,,,,,and I still have SEVEN LEFT! (dollar store!)
Paper is Recollections Holiday Traditions,,,,,,really, check out Michael's,,,,Recollections has some gorgeous paper out there this holiday season!
Now if someone would just make GORGEOUS HANUKKAH PAPER, I'd be in Heaven :)
