Holiday Happiness


Getting creative with Rub-Ons....

Here's a Holiday card which I created for a sketch on SCS #SC202. I tried to find the best possible colors to compliment these beautiful glittered Chickadee rub-on birds.... and ended up going with these heavy Cardstock colors from Making Memories and Stampin' Up!. I wanted brown tones on Green to accent with black and these were the nicest I had on hand. I Cuttlebugged the furthest panel (background) with the CB leaves folder (though its not really visible here). Finished off with silver brads and a rich brown ribbon. Added a SU sentiment from the set "So Many Sayings" to top border. What do you think of the End result?

Thanks for stopping by!
