Is it Christmas Yet?

I'm dreaming of a red, gold and blue Christmas!

I tend to like bright colors and shapes that are rounded, rather than square, though I do create in the square, so to speak. I used the white matte embossing paste and F/X mica powders from Dreamweaver Stencils.  I left some of the glittery powder in the grooves and took it out of others.  I brightened the berries with some Copic R29.  A tassle by JudiKins adorns the side of the card.  Simple but elegant.

This is truly a beautiful design that can be used in so many different ways.  Just a portion of the stencil is used here in matte black embossing paste - almost a shadow on the paper.  A striking difference, yes!

These are awesome! I love the non-traditional colors, too! Spices things up a bit!
