Late For A Very Important Date

I missed the IO White Challenge because I could not believe how my card looked when I took its picture. It literally made me laugh. Now it is a little better at least and I will share. LOLOL

I embossed the background behind the trees using Cuttlebug's Snowflakes folder.

The foreground is Cover-A-Card Dots. I stamped it on Neenah White cardstock with VersaMark and then applied Heat & Stick Embossing Powder and heated until clear. I added the glitter and heat embossed again. Then I brush the extra glitter off with an art brush.

I also embossed some additional white cardstock using Swiss Dots. I tore it at an angle to get the layered look. Next I used IO Alesa Baker's Clear Stamp Set Swirl Tree to get the outline for the trees. The trees were mounted with 3D pop dots.

I applied glitter to the embossed background and Swiss Dots with a Quickie Glue Pen and added the glitter and then shook off extra.

I punched 1/4" holes with a punch along the top of the card. I threaded the ribbon through the holes as shown and then created a bow with the Bow-Easy. I tied the tail on the right with a slip knot.

Left over buttons were added to the trees and a brass snowflake to the bow. Pearls and glitter were added as shown.

The tag is from Spellbinders and the words were stamped with Galaxy Gold and pearls added as shown.

Stamps: IO Clear Set Swirl Tree and Cover-A-Card Dots used with the Mega Mount
Inks: Brilliance Galaxy Gold,
Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White
Accessories: Cuttlebug Embossing Folders Snowflakes and Swiss Dots, Sakura Quickie Glue Pen, Deco Art Glamour Dust, Mark Richards 3mm and 5mm Pearl stickers, Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio, May Arts Ribbon, Bow-Easy, Fancifuls Inc. Brass Snowflake

Thanks for stopping by to look and share.
