OK.  Pleased.with.self.  I luuurrrve how this turned out!  I'm talkin' LUUUURRRVE!!!  I'm on a red, chocolate and white/cream kick for the holidays it seems.  I used Ultrafine (a.k.a. Detail or "fine grind") White detail embossing powder–I just seem to get a smoother finish when I use this instead of regular grind white.

What I would give for Chocolate Swiss Dot paper!  But, I got none, so had to fake it with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing folder and some A Muse French Roast (it's white core, so when you sand it, the white pops thru.  YAY!).

Combined Nina's Floral Snowflake and my  Mini Flake on the acetate (Grafix Clear Craft Plastic .007) and rounded the corners so nobody gets hurt–that stuff can be sharp on the corners if you don't.  

Why is it, for me, a shipping tag is simply not a shipping tag without a reinforcer 'round the hole?  I think it's cuz I'm "particular".  *chuckle*

I'm in this mood where all I wanna do is Christmas crafty stuff.  What is up with 'dat?!

Been blaring Christmas tunes via Pandora for days now . . .

Have a great weekend!

Oatmeal Card Stock (a slightly lighter toned kraft) –ETA, at Lori's inquiry: 
It is Speckletone Oatmeal, 80 lb. Cover weight Card Stock.  It is recycled and acid-free, too.  Made by Astro Converters; I got it at a Paper Zone store. It's nice stuff!  It's on the smoother side, stamps nicely, kinda "toasty" in hue.  It doesn't have "flecks", but, you can see it has recycled fibers.  I likes it quite muchly!

  3. Fantastic creation, Julie! I love white StazOn on acetate an all the other details. Great job getting a great photo too. I have the hardest time photographing acetate cards.
