teal christmas card

Hi there. I have started on the Christmas card list and some challenges are really inspiring me to go after the Christmas cards.

This week's challenge over at LIM is the one layer card with a coloured base card. I know that teal is not a colour associated with Christmas but I felt that this colour combo worked well. Obviously, I am open to your suggestions.

So I basically die cut the baubles into the base card. They are from the Sara's Scandinavian collection by Crafter's Companion. I then stamped the string in versamark and embossed in gold. Then I went over the baubles with a versamark pen and gold embossed as well. The sentiment is from Claritystamp Word chains and I gold embossed it too.

I thought I had finished when I realised I had smudges across the sentiment. So I had to hide it or else bin the card. So I got out an Imagination Crafts stencil and sparkle paste and added some sparkly snowflakes all around for balance. So now I'm keeping everything crossed that I won't get told that it is too busy!

Hugs, Theresa xx
