Christmas Cards Part 2

The phrase stamp is by My Sentiments Exactly.
The pine bough stamp is from Hero Arts.

The phrase is stamped in Ranger Archival Jet Black,
trimmed and the pine bough stamped over the
words with Ranger Distressed Ink Sage.
The edges were then sponged with
Ranger Archival Coffee and layered over
a shiny gold gift wrap that had been spray
glued to light weight card stock.
I trimmed it to a narrow border,
using my trusty layering rulers.
I attached pieces from flat parts
of a paper egg carton to give the 3-d look.

The plaid strip is washie tape over the same gold
gift wrap as was used under the phrase.

The card base also had the edges sponged with
the coffee ink.

Christmas Cards Part 1

The beginning of several designs.
This one is not going to be in the final designs.
There is just something about it that does not
do it for me.  
I am not saying that I don't like it, I just have
other designs that I like a lot more.
