I must admit this technique is not high on my "want to do again techniques", but that being said, I'm ok with the results.
The background is the 2nd one I did yesterday that I mentioned, using similar colors that Ted (Stampers Anonymous) did on a manilla tag. I used an Impression Obsession CAC "Wavy Lines" stamped on the horizontal. Love this stamp. Clear embossed, then sponged Broken China & Peeled Paint, clear embossed tapping of excess etc, then sponging Vintage Photo.
Electronically cut 4 layers of the word Baubles from 110# white cardstock, adhered them together and painted with black acrylic paint. When dry, swiped a stamp pad across the edges and top and embossed with gold embossing powder. I didn't have the banner die, so just cut a piece of cardstock the approx size, tattered the edges, sponged Festive Berries all over lightly, then a bit of Vintage Photo. Adhered the word.
Assembled everything, the tree and banner with pop dots. Added the green and red half pearls and a green ribbon hanger.
And it fits for these challenges:
