Retired Christmas

I made this card for a recent christmas swap for demonstrators. The swap was designed for us to recreate our favourite christmas cards from retired items. The stamp was stamped in Versamark ink and covered in White Embossing powder. Then I used my heat gun to set it. Then I used a two way glue pen to cover the tree with glitter. The Baja Breeze and Whisper White cardstock were cut out with the top note die. I cut the edge off of the baja breeze in order to matte it with the white. The DSP is from a retired hostess set from a few years ago. And the whole thing was mounted on some retired Blue Bayou cardstock. The ribbon is made from White Satin organza ribbon and retired Baja Breeze satin ribbon. I wrapped it with silver twine and tied the ribbon together as a bow.
