Christmas in September

This started out as Christmas in August, but you know how time flies when you're having fun. And the Dreamweaver Christmas challenge was no exception

Dry embossing, ink, flat pearls and ribbon were all it took to make a very elegant card. Dreamweaver Stencil LJ900

This is probably one of my first stencil purchases and I absolutely love it. I used matte white embossing paste and, when dry, colored with metallic paint pens and Copic markers. Dreamweaver Stencil LG 676.

A card that is easy to mass produce, this one will definitely be available at my holiday craft fair booth. Dreamweaver stencil LG731 with metallic gold paste. I'm also going to try using the pearlescent paste and coloring the holly and berries with metallic f/x.

My favorite just might be the sleigh (LJ904). I used matte black embossing paste with metallic red leafing. The holly berries are not post-office friendly, so I'm working on some other alternatives.

Thanks for stopping by.
