I started this card from a store purchased card base. You can save money by picking up craft items at the end of the season. The main cardinal was embossed with silver and punched out using a 2 1/2" circle punch. I also wanted to carry the silver theme over onto the pattern paper by embossing the baroque stamp.

I created two cards with the same stamps. The first card is a one layer clean and simple card. The other card was layered onto white cardstock with added bling. Which one is your favorite?
This card above is a clean and simple layout ceated with the embossed resist technique. I sponged certainly celery and not quite navy inks. I added clear and white sequins.
This is the wow card. I used the same process as above but I added clear rhinstones and layered the inked piece on white cardstock.
Challenges I participated in: 1) Mod Squad Challenge - one layer card 2) A Little Bit Crafty - CAS (Sat) 3) Cards GGalor Challenges - AG (Nov)

I came across this unique way to create angel wings. This creative person on Pinterest used paper plates to create a gorgeous set of wings. This would make a nice Christmas decoration.

I have a Christmas bag to share with you. This bag was created from two pieces of 6 x 6 cardstock. Using a Scor-Pal will make this project easy to make.
To create the bag take one of your 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock and score at 1/2" & 3" on the long side. Turn the paper and score at 2 1/2" from the bottom. Next repeat the same directions to the other piece of cardstock. Adhere the two pieces together to create the bag.
I stamped the main image on kraft cardstock with dark brown ink. Sponged the edges with the ink. I stamped the #25 in brown ink on light green cardstock. I punched out the circle with a 1 3/4" circle punch. I added poinsetta stickers, pearls and silver tinsel for the handle.
Challenges I participated in: 1)Scor-pal: More than one score challenge #10 (Nov Month) 2) Crafting Musketeers: #19 Anything but a card (Nov 28) 3) The Sisters of Craft - Anything Goes (Nov Month) 4) Pile it on challenge: #46 Vintage
