It is time for a new challenge at Phindy's Place Challenge and we want you to make a Christmas card. I love that I can get a head start on my holiday cards and I think I now have six made - only thirty-five or so to go.
I am always trying to come up with embellishments for Christmas cards that aren't too dimensional because I can't afford to mail that number of cards in boxes. I made the ornaments very simply by punching circles, running them through my Cuttlebug in a swirly embossing folder and then adding a handcut top, some gold cord bows and gold floss hanging thread. I rubbed some gold paste on the raised parts of the embossing to make it stand out.
I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
One Stitch at a Time - Say it with shapes
