Christmas Noel

It certainly has been a while since I posted.  Hopefully, things have slowed down and I'll be able to post more frequently.  This is my weekly card for the Merry Monday Challenge #37.

I chose Brushed Silver card stock for the base.   Silver Glimmer paper was punched on one edge with the Scallop Trim Border Punch, added to a piece of Snow Festival designer paper and attached to a piece of Gumball Green card stockShimmery White card stock was embossed using the Big Shot and the Holiday Frame embossing folderI then cut it out and sponged Platinum Shimmer Paint on the surface.  Glue dots were used to attach it to the green layer.  I ruffled a piece of Cherry Cobbler ribbon, attached it to the embossed oval and added a silver glimmer brad.  The whole layer was then added to the card front.  The sentiment from the Greetings of the Season stamp set was heat embossed on Cherry Cobbler card stock using VersaMark and Silver Embossing Powder and punched out with the Extra Large Oval PunchDimensionals were used to add it to the card.  I'm happy to be back posting again.  Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you're enjoying your weekend.
