Just Believe

 Hello!  This Christmas card is so simple but I just love how it turned out.  I didn't splatter it with water because I knew it would bring out the blues in the Distress Oxide and I wanted the clean look of the green.  And I also distressed the edges and added some Foundry Wax in gold.  Fun!


Supplies:
Tim Holtz - Bottlebrush Trees stamps
Unity Stamp Co - All is Calm -star stamp
Distress Oxide - Rustic Wilderness
Ranger clear embossing ink
Ranger Gold Tinsel embossing pwd
Stamping Platform
Tim Holtz - Deckle Dies
Tim Holtz - Tattered Christmas - sentiment stamp
distress tool
Foundry Wax - Gilded (on distressed edges of the card)

Thanks for stopping by today.  Enjoy this holiday season!
