This card is from a dear old friend, Linda, who I haven't seen in a bit so it was especially nice to hear from her. She and I go back to when I first started with Stampin' Up! ...that has been almost 14 years!
Linda used the holiday DSP as a layer with a stamped and sponged top note die cut (ooo! I love my Big Shot!!) on top. There is a strip of the special gold metallic paper through the middle, and finally a lovely button accent on the top. Because of the many hues in the DSP, Linda was able to stamp the detailed image monocromatically with just a hint of color added to the words. Very nice!!
thanks for all the great cards, greetings, calls and emails!!
