Wishing You

Here is my take on one of the cards we made at the Christmas Extravaganza in November. The card was created and taught by Paula Reid and Heather.  I finally got around to making some more at home.  You can see their original card here.

I have this Wishing You stamp set so I was able to use it, but I had to make a few minor changes.  I don't have the Decorative Label punch they used, so I used my Framelit Label Dies instead.  I also made use of the green ribbon I had which was different ribbon to the original card.  The one on the left features Old Olive ribbon which is possibly retired.  The card on the right features Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon.

I loved the layout of this card, the bright Real Red colour, as well as learning a new technique  - The emboss resist with a twist technique.  We only embossed part of the front and left part of it smooth so we could stamp an image. 

Thanks for visiting and wishing you a very Merry Christmas.
