Ippity Christmas Challenge

I'm loving all these Christmas challenges this rate I'll have my Christmas cards made in plenty of time to send most of them to Australia. I love making cards but it always seems like such a chore trying to get them all finished and in the mail in time! December is always so busy!

Anyway....this week's Ippity challenge is to make a Christmas card and I decided to combine stamps from both the Ippity Christmas sets Kissmas & Mistletoe and Season of Joy to make this card. It was tough to photograph with all the gold but hopefully you'll be able to see it ok....the background paper has a repeated "Happy Holidays" in gold on it and I stitched the buttons on the bows with gold embroidery thread.

Stamps - Ippity
Versamark ink
Gold embossing powder
Gold paper
DP - Hot Off the Press
Gold embroidery thread
Fiskars paper edgers
