I am glad that this day is Friday! Even though I only have one day off, which is Sat, it is OK, because that will mean I will have a 4 day weekend for the Thanksgiving holiday. Let's get to today's card!
For today's card, I used some red card stock from Stampin Up!, and I used a stamp from Hero Arts that is a distress frame. I actually inked it up with versa mark ink, and the spread some white embossing powder and heat set it with my heat tool. I wanted the emboss resist look, so that is why I started out with my frame first, so when I used some of my Fired Brick Distress Ink all over the card front, the embossed image would resist the ink. I just rubbed off some of the excess, and it shows that beautiful distressed frame. I, then added in the middle of that frame a "snow globe" sticker from K&C Company from their Yuletide collection. I added some Christmas ribbon that I purchased from Oriental Trading, at the bottom, and another sticker from Making Memories from their Mistletoe collection. It is the beautiful snow flake sticker you see there. I, then added some "stiching" with my white gel pen to make it pop. Pretty simple card.
Hope everyone has a great Friday, and weekend! Stay safe out there!
