It's Almost Holly Time!

I have to admit, I am really getting excited about Christmas CARDS!!! Theresa Momber's newest set, "A Very Merry Christmas" definitely has images that gets you thinking of dressing the house and having the family around! I totally surprised myself at coloring this holly!! I was being lazy and just didn't want to go look up how REAL holly looks... hee hee. So... I punted; and I gotta say.... I am quite pleased with how it came out. But... my favorite part was the ribbon... no doubt!! I wanted burgundy but with a touch of shine and I didn't want to add glitter or any type of lacquer. So... I actually used what I learned in my Copic Certification class... imagine that!! Coloring the edges and just using my blender to bring the color in towards the middle to nothing. I LOVE how it worked out!!! THEN... another "woot woot" when I went to add ribbon to the card. Gina K's Holiday ribbon assortment had JUST the color of the ribbon I was coloring!! Noooo I didn't realize this when I bought the pack... Noooo I didn't get it and go thru it all. But, what a nice surprise!!! LOL Perfect!!! I embossed my base card with the Argyle Cuttlebug embossing folder and my gold oval was created using the new "Good as Gold" Pure Luxury Metallic cardstock. WOW!! I believe I have a new PERFECT gold!!! You must go check out all the new ribbons, buttons, papers AND the added "Deck the Halls" digital paper also designed by Theresa Momber!!! It's sooooo pretty!!! Hope you have a great Monday!!! *smile* Signature
