Christmas Card #6

Stamp sets: Dasher, All Holidays, Best Yet (retired)

Ink: Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler
Paper: Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Scallop Trimp Border Punch, Med Oval Punch, Scalloped Oval Punch, Petals A Plenty embossing folder, Frost Shimmer Paint, Sakura Gel Pen (non SU)

I really like this card! I really wanted to use Dasher on a card and had tried making a tent card with Bashful Blue & Night of Navy. The card never worked out. Everything I tried didn't look right and the hubster got tired of me asking, 'Well, what about if I did this instead of that?'

This is a Inspired by Ink original! Totally thought up by me and having so many Cherry Cobbler pieces left over that I wanted to use. No casing or copying! woohoo & yay me. Sorry I need to toot my horn once in a while.

Our shimmer paint is AWESOME! You just need to pour a bit into a small spray bottle (a little goes along way- just like adhesive!), shake it up and spray sparingly onto cardstock. Lay it down to dry and then look at the awesome shine! Ohh so lovely. I even sprayed it on the inside of some of my Christmas cards. Gives it an added bling. The more bling the better I say.

Here's the inside. Plus there's a poinsetta on the envelope too. I really enjoy decorating the inside AND the envelope of my cards.
