Sweet Stamps Red, Green & Gold

Sweet Stamps Challenge:

Red, Green and Gold

Make sure to join us on the Sweet Stamps blog, we'd love to see what you create. You have a chance at winning $20 to purchase some "sweet" things of your own!! There's plenty of wonderful things to choose from!

I created a surprise card using this fun tutorial I recently found.
For the main front sentiment I used "May the Peace", such a perfect sentiment for those holiday cards as well as a fun font.  The paper I used is from the 6x6 Authentique stack "Wonder".  I just love this stack!

When the card is popped up it shows the "Merry Christmas Script" sentiment.

 A close-up of the front sentiment "May the Peace".

 For the front green strip of paper I used Core'dinations and first embossed it and then sanded it.
 The sanded areas stood out a little too much for me.

So I sponged Creative Inspirations Paint "Green Olive" to tone it down a litte and to add some shimmer!

Have a wonderful day!

Kendra
