This is the first time I’ve used the Pine Bough Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and I love it.  It makes creating a card a snap.  I embossed, stamped, cut a few pine cones, tied a knot and that’s it!

I got a bit carried away with the glitter 🙂  I put dots of Tombow glue all over and then poured gold glitter on top.  Glitter went everywhere!  But, I like it ~ I’m kind of a glittery girl!

Silent Night angledThe sentiments on this card are portions of a new stamp called Merry Medley.  It’s a large stamp with lots of words on it.  I stamped it on Whisper White card stock and then cut out the words I wanted!  Here’s what the stamp looks like…see if you can find the portions I used!!
