CCM Saturday Blog Hop - Textures & Ribbon

Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is creating textures using ribbon, embossing folders or paste, or sponging - anything to add dimension. I figured this would be a good time to give the Tidings & Trimmings bundle a test drive. I have to start thinking about my Christmas cards!

The background was created with one of the Wintry 3D embossing folders on Sahara Sand, with Evening Evergreen sponged lightly over to enhance the details. I also sponged E.E. on some matching cardstock using the polka dot mask in the Basic Patterns Decorative Masks. I love polka dots, do you?

The greeting was stamped in Evening Evergreen on Soft Succulent and die cut with the Tailor Made Tags Dies. A few of the stars in the Christmas Trimmings Dies cut from gold metallic specialty paper were added along with an Evening Evergreen Open Weave Ribbon bow.

That's my share for today. Now click the Next button to jump over to Libby Fens at Libby Stamps, or the Back button to see what Mary Brown at Stamper Camper's Corner has made!
