Bring On the Merry

It seems crazy to me that Christmas is less than 3 weeks away!
Time sure is flying.....
Today, I have a card to share that I made using Reverse Confetti's Bring On the Merry stamp set.

I started by using a stencil and embossing paste to add some falling snow to my background.
Then, I diecut the end of a strip of vellum using the largest tag from Reverse Confetti's Tag Me.
I stamped my sentiments in versamark and heat embossed them in gold embossing powder.
I stitched the banner in place with my sewing machine.
I diecut some mistletoe and used a versamark pen to colour in the berries,
which I heat embossed it in white.
Then I swiped my versamark pad onto some white cardstock and heat embossed it in gold.
I ran this through my diecutting machine with a bow die to cut out my bow.

Make Your Own Background.

Thanks for looking!

Love this one! The gold embossing looks pretty on the vellum banner and the cluster of greens/berries ties it off nicely.
