Only Ten more days 'til Christmas

This was one of my favorite sets from the Holiday Mini but it was really a Valentine's set and hard to demo for my workshops when things are all so hectic and no one can think about anything after the holidays so I turned it into a Christmas card and I thought it worked. It also helps that it was a 6:30 in the morning the morning of the workshop inspiration and it just sounded good after being up all night. Take the heart from the You are Loved set and stamp it using the real red CRAFT pad- it is a pigment pad so it stays wet a lot longer to allow you to heat emboss it using the iridescent ice EP and it is gorgeous IRL ! Wrap the white cardstock with the cherry cobbler bakers twine. Stamp the sentiment image with love in the center from the same set with real red craft and emboss again with iridescent icet. Punch it out and mount it on the card using dimensionals. Stamp Merry Christmas from the teeny tiny wishes set- and again the red craft inke then heat emboss with iridescent ice to make EVERYTHING sparkle! Add 2 rhinestone on either side and easy peasy christmas card using what was originally a Valentine's image- I love it still! Use the same layout but keep the image with Love sentiment for Valentine's day. No one will ever know!
