happy holidays

The challenges:
'Use punches' ~ Crazy 4 Challenges.

Papers: Making Memories ~ Mistletoe: Happy Holidays.

For the main piece, I embossed the edges with black and red glitter embossing powder, before machine stitching the edges. You might notice that the machine went a bit crazy with the zig zag. This is because it is old and I need a new one. I've asked santa for a new one, but he is quite forgetful, so I have to remind him every day. Well that's fine, I will do that until I know it is safely on his sleigh! LOL. I did show him this as an example of why I need a new one and his response was that nobody would notice. Well I guess that's the beauty of hand made!

Flowers: Prima
Brad: SEI ~ I'll have run out of these by the time I get to use the matching paper that I bought them for!

Image: Magnolia ~ Silent Night Tilda, coloured with copics.

I dry embossed the paper that Tilda is standing on with a snowflake embossing folder. The edges have been punched with a Martha Stewart ~ Snowflake border punch. I've added some more red and gold glitter embossing. Tilda is standing on snow ~ also known as Cosmic Shimmer ~ Glitter Jewels.

Thank you for looking.

OMG what a delightful card.
This is awesome.

This is fabulous - I love all the different elements and techniques -the stitching is fine and adds to the distressed feel of things but don't tell Santa I said that - we don't always want the distressed look.
