Non-traditional Yule card

Gosh it's hard to believe it's Wednesday already and I haven't blogged since Sunday, I have been busy make some creations but they have to remain secret for a little while longer!  However I am able to share a card with you today which was inspired by some challenges.

I decided to make another Yule card.  I used a pre-scored base card, covered with Creata Classic Silver paper.  I embossed a sheet of Creata Classic paper in Amethyst using a Sheena Douglass Taste of India embossing folder.  I rounded all the corners with a corner punch and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Dusty Concord distress ink.  The rosette is made from Creata Patterned Card using a bone folder and scoring board.  This is distressed with the same Tim Holtz ink, and adhered with Cosmic Shimmer glue.  The button and silver & white cord is from my stash.  I used the same cord to make the hanging for the bauble, which is cut from Creata Patterned card and distressed with Tim Holtz Bundled Sage distress ink.  The tags were punched from Creata Patterned card using a Woodward punch, the glittered green brad is from my stash and the tags are fixed to the card with foam pads.  The sentiment is stamped on to Creata Silver Classic paper using Anna Marie Designs Reindeer set of stamps using Staz On ink.
