A Bit Over the Top

Today's project is one that I most certainly wouldn't do in a class or workshop, but really like none-the-less.  It is a wee bit too involved to do in a class setting but sometimes it's fun to just allow yourself to go a little embellishment happy.  Have a look and you'll see what I mean...

Over-the-top Christmas card featuring the Evergreen stamp set.

Soooo...I kinda went a little crazy with the pearls.  I just couldn't stop!  Now, looking at it again, I probably should have...they are a bit much!  There are a couple of things I do love about this card, though. Firstly, the music background.  It is from the Natural Compositions specialty paper pack.  The images come clear-embossed on a neutral brown background.  I just sponged Cherry Cobbler ink all over to make the notes pop off the page...they almost look like they're embossed in gold!  Very cool and so easy!  The other element I love is the new scalloped tulle ribbon.  Here I used the Crumb Cake version, but it is also available in Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso.  So soft and pretty...it adds a truly unique element to any design.  Of course I also love the Evergreen stamp set.  I just can't get enough of that set...you'll most definitely be seeing more of it in the coming months.

Now a couple of reminders...
