Holiday Thinking Inking Week 3

Happy Friday my friends! I made another card for the Holiday Thinking Inking Class and this month's Hero Arts Challenge:

This is a giftcard/cocoa/chocolate/ticket Holder. The trees are stamped with Versamark onto patterned paper, heat embossed with clear embossing powder and then inked with Distress Ink. Then I stamped the Music Background over them. I wanted to have a larger label to mat the stamped piece and just traced around the largest die, then cut it out. Here is the inside of the card:
I just couldn't get a better photo of the inside. Sorry!

Ok, off to try and get some cleaning done. My sweet little girl suffers from an ear infection and while she is awake she wants to snuggle a lot (not that I am complaining about that part, I am enjoying the snuggling).

Have a happy day!! Thanks for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa
