Peace . Love . Joy .

A holiday card today.......

This card took me a looong time to  get done , all the layering and die cutting and embossing !!!!!!
but I think it was definitely worth it!..what say?
I was a bit disappointed with the embossing and wanted to start over , but having  spent 2 hours on it already , I  could not get myself  to trash it , so I let it be and promised to get myself an embossing buddy in the future!

 I started with textured cardstock for the background , stamped a couple of trees- Studio 112,  for the focal point  ..die cut the house - Memory box out of watercolor paper, the different elements like the wreath , and the foreground trees are by PTI, the sentiments are  by TPC studios and PTI, some diamond stickles  and finally the embossing powder by Martha Stewart.

  1. I totally would never give this away! too much effort. UNLESS yo want to send it to me! hehe...

  2. Gorgeous!! I agree with Wida...I couldn't give this away..
    That little house with the wreath...ADORABLE!!! wow!

  3. LOVE this card, Sanketi. I would not give it away either. No way. Great job combining the dies. I don't have an embossing buddy either, but I think it was Betsy Veldman who shared a tip to fold fabric around some cornstarch and sew the edges. I needed it right away and didn't have time to sew, so I just put some cornstarch in a paper towel, rubbed it on the card before pouring the powder on, and it worked perfectly!

  4. Well worth all that time, Sanketi - love all the details! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at the Simon Says Stamp challenge this week - good luck!

  5. I love this house and all your layering..... So beautiful! I would want to keep this one too. I love the red white and green . Your gold embossing is gorgeous. I would frame this one Sanketi.
