Whew! Just under the wire! ;-D I decided to make a Christmas card for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #10 (details here) since it was Claire's Christmas stamp sets from last year that first captivated me. I embossed the white card panel, and cut the snowflake paper out with a nestie. I stamped the gorgeous retro/vintage star and the holiday sentiment and embossed them in gold filigree embossing powder. I then took two of the border images and embossed them in gold as well, just under and over the embossed portion of the white cardstock. I love how that looks! I used gold brads for the two side elements, anchoring some teeny gold lacey ribbon with them, and using the ribbon for the tag bow as well. Another Christmas card for the "finished" stack! :-)
