Outlines Monday Challenge 30 - Merry and Bright

Our team challenge this week for Outlines Rubber Stamp is Merry and Bright.  Visit the Outlines Rubber Stamp blog to join the challenge for a chance to win a $25 shopping spree and to see what the rest of the design team has created.


I started by stamping C-280 Christmas, C-291 Greetings and E-520 Holly Sq. Lg; heat embossing them all with gold embossing powder. I used a punch to remove the little tree from the greetings, lining up and layering the red and green panels.  The holly background is a Sizzix embossing folder.  I added Topaz Swarovski Crystals to the lace ribbon.  All of the papers are metallic and have a lovely sparkle that does not show up in the picture.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

I bet this is so incredibly gorgeous in real life with all of that sparkle. Sure wish we could figure out a way to capture sparkles with a camera...I love the layout, and the holly berries in the middle are so lovely.

Wonderful card Sandy, I love the layout and I totally get sparkle not showing up but I can see the crystals and have no doubt they shine beautifully. Hugs ... Carole
