It's time to get ready for Christmas! OK, not really...but w/the latest challenge over on the ribbon carousel blog, I was inspired to go w/a Christmas card! It's my first time participating in this challenge and I knew which card direction to go...

The challenge: basically do a card w/anything that comes off a spool. Easy enough! :)

So, here's my card. I used the music note stamp and embossed it w/gold powder. Then, I stamped the Christmas ornaments (these are clear stamps that are part of a holiday set. Bought them at a scrapbooking show, though, and can't find the company's name--sorry!). I cut them out, embossed them also, and colored in portions of 'em. Then I tied some gold twine to attach the ornaments and I was done! Mounted it on some red cardstock and I love the look of the card. Makes me think of singing Christmas carols, that's for sure!

  1. Lovin' this one Pat!! That gold embossing is amazing! Thanks for playing along at the Ribbon Carousel Challenge this week!

  2. I need to get cranking on my Christmas ideas---I always feel so behind by the time December rolls around. I love the gold twine; it really makes your ornaments pop!
