ID: PeelOffs - Sticky Shapes Xmas - Take Time #2
5"w x 6.5"h

Created August 23, 2007

I cut a piece of mulberry type paper with the heavy gold embossed stars (Quietfire Design) to a size smaller than my card, so that I would end up with a border with no design. I placed the  star paper inside may main white card and positioned properly, closed the card (so the star paper was sandwiched between), then ran it through my Cuttlebug (using the normal adapters). I was so pleased when it came out of the machine and I realized it had embossed beautifully and the star paper was not ruined at all. 

I masked the edges with removable tape, then ran a Versa Mark stamp pad over the whole paper and dusted various blue, gold and some pink colors of Jacquard mica powders over it, adding more Versa Mark and powder where needed. Lightly applied some gold Rub On over the stars and dots. Stuck 2 ornaments down (Quietfire Design "Peel Offs Sticky Shapes - Ornaments" pkg) and sprinkled gold glitter. In the negative areas added Diamond Glaze and gold mini glass beads. When dry, covered the ornaments with more diamond glaze to give a glass like feel and look. Glued some gold toned 4 ply waxed linen thread to act as the hanger and for the bow. Rubber stamped the quote (Quietfire Design "Take Time to delight") using Color Box Petal Points stamp pad "Alchemy" set and clear embossed it. See detail pics below.
