Here's another Christmas card using my new stamp set from SU! "Easy Events".  This is a really fun set to use.  I popped up only the middle square with dimensionals to add depth, but it's hard to tell in the photo.  Hope you like.


Stamps:  Easy Events, Christmas Greetings (SU!)
Paper:  Old Olive, Whisper White (SU!)
Ink:  Real Red, Old Olive (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Green & Red glitter glue (Studio G from Michael's), Mistletoe ribbon (SU!), Ice embossing powder, heat tool, sticky strips and dimensionals

I stamped the image onto three small pieces of Whisper White cardstock.  I filled in the leaves and berries with glitter glue and left the pieces to dry overnight.

I attached a piece of Mistletoe ribbon around the two outside panels, securing it at the back.  On the middle panel, I wrapped the ribbon around and tied a knot in the center.

I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink onto Whisper White cardstock and then heat embossed with "Ice".
I mounted all the pieces as shown in the picture onto a card base of Old Olive, popping up the middle panel only to add depth.


Today was High Tea for my Crafty girlfriends.  We had lots of laughs and stuffed ourselves silly!! :)  We enjoyed the food along with pots of Black Currant tea and Mango Mist tea - delicious!!
Here's a couple of pictures of the food I made for today:
