- I couldn't stray too far from my favorites, so of course I had to use My Mind's Eye papers! Love the bright colors and bold prints in the 12 Days of Christmas pack. I made banners from three different paper patterns and overlapped them randomly on the card base. A fourth pattern is layered horizontally as a thin band.
- I embossed the chipboard ornament diecut with Tim's Retro Circles texture fade, sprayed it with teal starburst spray, and gave it a coat of Future floor polish to stiffen it and give it a shiny finish. Some Rock Candy Distress Stickles gives it an icy sparkle.
