Merry Christmas

Its Sunday and all I have made this weekend is one Christmas card, maybe I can get on the ball later.  Last week I found a slab of MME Christmas paper & it actually is really pretty, I am loving it so far.  Thank goodness Michael's is finally getting some good paper!  Anyhow, I put a piece of adhesive on the back of the dp to keep it in place when I sewed over them.  I put some striped red/vanilla grosgrain ribbon along the front of the dp and then added red velvet ribbon on top and added a ribbon slide too.  I'm trying to make a pretty Christmas card without it being too heavy, the post office here is very picky and add a surcharge to just about every card I send out because of the ribbon knots or embellishments that they can feel.
Using the Labels 2 die (from Spellbinders) I cut and embossed my paper, then I left my paper in the die & using a sponge dauber and distress ink, I inked up the paper.  By leaving the paper in the die, I get the clean crisp edge to it, it almost looks like two layers of paper, but its just one.  The ornament is from the All that Glitters stamp set from Flourishes llc, I colored in the ornament using my R27 Copic marker.
I hope you all enjoy your Sunday!  How many of you have all of your Christmas cards done?

for someone who is moving at the end of the year, you'd think there would be more mass production coming out of your house...LOL BTW, it's a great card, as always...i got my xmas journal done and on my blog...where's yours?? >"<
