Everyday Cricut Day 4 ~ Christmas Card!

Hi Paper Lovers!  Wow, I can't believe that my Guest Designing week at Everyday Cricut is almost over!  :)  I've had a blast creating a variety of themes for you.  So far I've done Halloween, Birthday, Fall and now it's time for Christmas!  Again today I went with nontraditional colors.  While making this card, I thought this would be a pretty 25th anniversary card too, with a few tweaks!
 


 
After cutting all the pieces, I inked the edges.  Stamped the sentiment on the handmade banner and curled it for more pop!

I added a bit of gold stickles to the berries on the holly cut.  Then ribbon and hemp bows with a square sparkly button.  No glitter today, but still plenty of bling!  :) To see how I crinkle my seam binding ribbon, click HERE!

It's hard to see but I embossed the cream paper with an embossing folder!
 
Recipe:
Teresa Collins December 25th Cricut Cartridge
label cut at 3.54 x 3.90
created a shadow with the gypsy cut at 3.59 x 4.19
dec 25th cut at 3.15 x 3.90
holly cut at 1.96 x 1.98 and shadow to match
Liz's Paper Loft Boutique ~ seam binding ribbon, .05mm black hemp,  square button
My Creative Time ~ Christmas House stamp set
Teresa Collins Cuttlebug embossing folder
banner cut by hand, ink, gold stickles, silver ribbon from my stash
 
Now it's Giveaway Time!!!  All you have to do is leave a comment with your contact info here and on Everyday Cricut!  I will pick one winner for this Limited Edition Metallic Hemp on Saturday, October 20, and announce it on my blog!
 

 
I will be back tomorrow with my last project :( for Everyday Cricut!
 
I have also entered this at the DYSU Challenge Blog!
 
Enjoy!
