Pals (119) and Players (71)


There's a lot going on with this card - just like the holiday season! Pals Paper Arts challenged us this week to do a holiday card and I decided to follow the recipe at The Paper Players.  Let's check that list of ingredients:

3 Pieces of Designer Paper:  Silver Glimmer, Letters to Santa, Marina Mist Stripes
2 Ribbons:  Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, Old Olive Narrow Taffeta
Punch:  Look carefully - there's the edge of of a one inch circle peeking out as a tab to open the card.
Glitter:  Hmm the silver cord is sparkly and how about the glittery paper?  And then there are those random bits of silver embossing powder scattered here and there where they aren't exactly supposed to be!  That definitely added extra sparkle!

'Tis the season to make a list and check it twice.....

Linda, This is one of my top favorite cards I have seen all season! I just love the use of the stamp and the little circle tab adds such a finishing touch . Would you share the measurements of your card on your blog?

Pretty Christmas card Linda. I like that you have embossed the main image with Silver and the Designer Paper behind co ordinates beautifully with the image. Thanks' for joining us at The Paper Players this week.

The glimmer paper adds just the right touch to bring out the embossed image.

If you can cook up a card this gorgeous, I can only imagine what a great cook you are in the kitchen! This is beautiful, Linda!

Linda, I love this! Love the three sentiments stacked up stamp. Love the DSP in the background and how it ties in with the ornaments on the sentiment. Love that you used blue to pull from the ornaments in the DSP. All very cool.

What can I say, Linda Callahan?!! I just love your style! Another gorgeous card! Love the silver glimmer paper! Those stray bits must have found their rightful place in the whole production, because I see nothing to indicate they aren't where they're supposed to be!
