Christmas Carol

Christmas Carol - It is time for another fun challenge at Creative Card Crew. This fortnight we are sponsored by the fabulous Simon Says Stamp, the largest online craft store in North America!!! And they ship internationally!!

Creative Card Crews challenge is maps/sheet music/news print/script. I choose sheet music for my card. I thought is worked well with this fabulous caroling image by Stampin Up.

My sheet music DP is Color Bok's Sepia sheet music. I tore the DP using my Fiskers Tear Edger. I love this tool because without my tears go very crooked. Not a pretty sight at all. LOL

The foundation layer was distressed with my TH distress tool.

The other DP is The Paper Studio, Holiday Wonder pad. The pad has some teals in it that are really pretty. 

My image is SU Christmas Carol. I stamped it with glue from The Rubber Cafe and then rubbed their fine glitter over the image. It is hard to see the sparkle from the glitter in the photo, but it is there.

The sentiment is part of the stamp set, which I stamped on the same music sheet paper, then used SU punch. I inked it with fire brick distress ink.

I finished off my card with red bakers twine and pearls that were made with a silver chrome pearl pen by Viva Decor. I love these pearl pens. I have them in several colors, but which I had them all. You can get them from Simon Says Stamp here.

Would you believe that I even finished of the inside!!!! Again the sentiment is from the same set as the main image. The hollies are also from the set. I added some evergreen distress ink on it.
