Merry Christmas to All

Hello Everyone,
I know, I have been missing in action for a while and I am so sorry. I have been really busy and the time just slipped away.

Let me show you a card  I just made using a new die from Memory Box. It's not a fancy card because
I decided to just emboss the image into the card stock instead of cutting it out.
This is a kind of a prototype card. Just seeing how this would turn out if I did it this way, vs. cutting the image out and using the die cut..

I applied white ink to the red card stock to make it appear to be like a blackboard, or should I say a redboard. Next using a glue pen I traced the words and the flourishes and covered that with silver glitter.
I added a white snowflake to the panel about half way down and there are 2 holly leaves towards the bottom. I  used Wink of Luna, green to color those leaves in.

To finish, I matted the red panel with a silver paper and mounted that on a yellow card stock.

I used a red pleated organdy ribbon and attached it with a single white snowflake brad to hold the ribbon in place.

Paper/Card Stock: Yellow Card Stock Red Card Stock, Silver Paper
Ink: White Pigment Ink
Dies Used: Memory Box - Merry Christmas To All  
AccessoriesRibbon, Glue Pen, Silver Glitter, White Snowflake brads,

I am submitting my card to the following challenges:

Have a great week and I will back in a few days, I promise.
