A Merry Little Christmas

 In cleaning my room, I never realized how many embossing folders I had for Christmas. Everything old is new again.   

   So so much ink on this card LOL... I picked a folder from Sizzix on this card.   I wasn't sure which side I wanted so I inked both sides with crushed olive distress and went with the debossed side after.  I then blended peeled paint on the raised surface.   I then took a red marker to all of the berries.  There was sooooo much ink I had to rub glaze over it and set it aside to dry a bit.  
I stamped the holiday greeting in ranger jet black and then blended festive berries and cut it with Sizzix scalloped edge circle stack.  The outer scallop has  gold embossing powder around the edge.   I added tan and white bakers twine and bow and raised the circles with dimension tape. 
A little bit of bakers twine in a bow. 
Everything all on a black base. 

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:

The Male Room - Christmas
Shopping Our Stash - Christmas
Creative Knockout - Celebration (Christmas)
Simon Says - Emboss
