And, yes, I used Graphic45 Christmas Past again. I do have other paper in my stash, but I love G45 and do have a lot of it sitting here. Might as well use it! If you are tired of seeing it, I will be making some cards this week with other papers, so stay tuned! Anyway...I needed some metal to "enamel" so found this ginormous Basic Grey bookplate in my stash. I think I found them in a bin at Big Lots a few years ago - for $1.
I don't have any distress embossing powder, so used a mix of other powders I had in my stash. (I am not much of a heat embosser. Too messy!) I love how the bookplate turned out. I looks all old and...well, like enamelware to me! I jazzed everything up with mulberry paper roses and some vintage looking brads (K&Co). I added just a bit of crochet lace and some Christmas rub-ons.
I showed this card to my husband and he said, "What's up with the backwards D?" Sigh.... He has no creative eye! But, I am one Christmas card closer to being finished! Woot!
ETA: I am also entering this into the Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge, which calls for Flowers and Ribbon, of course. I have flowers and lace trim...so hope that counts!
