Here's my Christmas Card for the JustRite Christmas Linky Party:
I used the "Dear Santa" embossing folder from Quickutz on red Core'dinations cardstock. A little sanding, a little inking and the background was done. One of my current favorite paper lines right now is Simple Stories and that is where I found the little tags which are included on the front of the card. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment and then framed it with an Ornate Plate from Tim Holtz. The decorative black edge strip along the bottom is courtesy of a Martha Stewart edge Punch!
The final touch was some tea-dyed baker's twine from The Twinery. I love baker's twine but sometimes the white is just too bright for one of my projects. That was the case here. I originally pulled out the Maraschino Twine. It just didn't work with the faded old-world feel of this card, so I dug into my tea-dyed stash - yes, I keep a stash. I ended up choosing the Pink Sorbet - surprise!
