Mark’s Finest Papers - http://marksfinestpapers.blogspot.com



I wanted to make a Christmas card with non-traditional colors. I used ink, spray, smash technique for the top panel. I stamped the musical score for Silent Night. I used the trees and sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers -Walk in the Woods set. I burned the edges of the purple panel. I added lace and the music note from the musical holiday set. I used my sewing machine to stitch the edges. I used my scalloped scissors to finish the edges. I added ribbon, wire and beads.
