Christmas Card (1)...







As much as it pains me to think of all that snow coming, I have to admit I am excited to start on my Christmas Cards..
I "shopped my Stash" and pulled out some older Dies from Tim Holtz and Sizzix and an Embossing Folder by Sizzix..
And you know.... I think I was humming some of my favourite tunes, too!! hee hee

- Faux Letterpressed the background matt with an older Cuttlebug Folder - Candy Cane Stripe - 37-1929 and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink by Tim Holtz

- Heat embossed the flowers, sentiment and paper-pieced umbrella with American Standard Zing Opaque white Embossing Powder and Versamark Embossing Ink.

- Tied two bows with some Twinery Bakers Twine and Voila!!
