Here's a little holiday card I made. I used the Peppermint Forest stack which was available at Jo-ann's last holiday season. I start by cutting out a standard sized card base. I embossed simple snowflakes all over the card front using Stamp n Stuff Embossing Powder in Kaleidoscope by Stampendous. It's basically clear with glitter. The effect is subtle, especially over patterned paper, but it's elegant and I liked it.
Then I cut out a piece of a patterned sheet that included a sentiment. I tied a piece of old scrap ribbon I had laying around onto it and then mounted it to a red piece of cardstock. I added some stitching lines with my white gel pen.
I hand cut out the gingerbread and teacup - which cut together as one piece. Then I added Diamond Stickles around the outline, & to the details of the cup & gingerbread. I mounted this piece on with Pop Dots.
