I made a rustic style Christmas card in dark red and gold tones using Spellbinders Fleur de Lis squares and Cricut cutouts from Christmas Cheer and Sophisticated cartridges:
All the patterned card stock layers have distressed edges and I used decorative sisal for the first time as part of my embellishments. I added strings of sisal underneath the Fleur de Lis diecuts as well in the quadruple shabby bow.
I embossed the stockings with Darice Damask embossing folder, heat embossed them with rustic gold embossing powder and added string on mini rustic gold pearls.
The shabby bow was made with seam binding ribbon and decorated with small poinsettia flower that was also heat embossed with rustic gold embossing powder. As you can see there are sisal strings running through it.
Side look reveals all the layers and dimension....
I am entering this card into following challenges:
