Around the Corner!

Happy Wednesday and today I will share with you a Christmas card using the new "Christmas Chalk" release. With Christmas just around the corner, it is time to start with those cards, gift tags and bags and what have you!
This started with an embossed folder background that was highlighted using Barn Door and shaded the edges with same. I always give a quick spray of a matte sealer to set the inks.
I wanted to stay with the Red, Green and White Christmas colors!  The frame was stamped in Stazon red and clear embossed. The Christmas tree was stamped in Olive Archival and clear embossed. For the sentiment, I stamped this with clear embossing ink and starting at the bottom and being careful covered in red and green embossing powders. Sorry I did not pick up the shine in the photo, but it is there!
And using Tim's little pocket die, how perfect for "Thank You" cash gifts or cards and a little mini card cut to size.
Hard to believe we are midway through November, but there is still plenty of time to join in the Monthly Referral Program and you never know if you won't be the winner of a prize or be chosen Top 3, so come and join in!  Thank you so much for visiting today!

Love the great sentiment as the main stage- so pretty surrounded by the embossing. Also gotta love the gift card holders- that is about all my kids want!

Love the bold, bright traditional red & green... the Christmas Chalk sentiment looks fabulous divided between the two. And the teeny tiny cards and envelopes are adorable!
