Gold Greetings to all...
Here is my card for SSC, which had to have weaving. I used DCWV cardstock for base and scored with scor-pal and scor-bug on sides.
Distressed the card edges too. I used Nesties Label #1 for the gold dotted-swiss embossed and
green DCWV cardstock. All strips are same cardstock used for weaving and cut out with scalloped oval Nestie. TAC stamp sets are the Holly from T-1253 Christmas Fun and the Merry Christmas Oval R-2721 (both sets retired).
I embossed the Merry Christmas Oval with detail gold powder on white bristol board cut out and touched edges with burnt umber ink. The Holly was embossed with black detail powder on Bristol board and colored with Marvy brush Markers and stardust red and green pens from Sakura. I took my time getting the idea as it is the middle of the week, but I think it was worth it. I am liking my own work and may have to make several more. What do you think?
