This is a card I made at a Stampin'Up! stamp camp the end of September. The new SU snowflake embossing folder was used on the green mat -- beautiful effect! The stocking was stamped and then punched out using the new SU stocking punch as were all the silver glitter pieces. This is the brand new silver glitter paper from SU -- absolutely breathtaking! Such high quality, almost looks like little diamonds floating on the paper. Well worth the little bit extra cost of this paper! A tiny jingle bell and bakers twine finish off the embellishments of this card. Cute and simple yet elegant!
The teddy bear in the background is one of my creations from this past fall craft season -- love him!
I ripped the right top corner of the background paper and distressed the edges using soft suede ink. I then added a complimentary piece of cardstock in the area that was exposed... The light from the lamp was cut from gold vellum, so it gives a soft glow to the look of the card. The holly leaves were die cut from a printed green paper and then distressed. The holly berries were die cut using red velvet paper -- really looks nice and elegant!
I hope you enjoy this card as much as I do! Oh -- the teddy bear holding up the card is one of my own creations that I sold at local craft shows this fall -- isn't he just adorable???!!!
