Christmas Card #1

I did it! I cannot believe it, but I made a Christmas card in September!!! YIKES! I guess it's better to be prepared though, right?

I had this idea in my head late one night and decided to try it out. It's nothing exciting, but I just wanted to see how a card would look by adding bling using a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I think the result turned out pretty. I even added some extra sparkle using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.

I inked the edges with some Craft White ink to soften up the edges a bit. I used all different sizes of bling which can be found by clicking HERE at Hope Stamps Eternal.

Stamps: Sentiment (Studio G)
Paper: Select White (PTI), Brocade Blue
Ink: Craft White, Night of Navy
Other: Bling (Zva, Memory Box), Glimmer Mist (Tattered Angels), Embossing Folder (CB), Ribbon (Hobby Lobby)
