Finally got some time to play with my new stamp set from Lawn Fawn.  Decided to play along for this week’s Simon Says Stamp’s Challenge (Let’s play bingo – top line across: Ribbon/twine, Gems, Glitter/Sparkle) and for this week’s Lawnscaping Challenge:

Although Christmas is over, Christmas cards are my favorite to make, so, here is another Christmas card:

I inked the debossed side of a Sizzix embossing folder with distress ink and embossed it using my Cuttlebug.  Then I spritzed it with water mixed with perfect pearl. I stamped the two large ornaments from Ornate Ornaments stamp set from Lawn Fawn onto clear transparency and cut them out.  I then added lots of Martha Stewart Glitter on the back using Glossy Accents.  I used dimensional adhesive to pop up the ornaments.  The sentiment is also from Ornate Ornaments.  I used white embossing powder to make it stand out on the red cardstock.  For the final finishing touches, I added baker’s twine, pearl gems, and used a white gel pen for the faux stitching around the sentiment.

I love how this card turned out~ (a rare thing for me!)  It is so sparkly!  Here are a couple of closeups of the ornaments.  Can’t quite capture the glitter, but I love it so. 🙂

 

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas weekend!
