It's Been A Long Time

Hey are you still there? I's been forever since I've posted. I'm back to work after having the summer off. It's nice to have some type of a schedule again. I love summer, but by the end of it I'm ready for some structure.

Here's a card I made a while back using some baroque letters that I got from Close To My Heart. You can't tell from the picture, but I outlined the letters with a clear glitter gel pen and they just shimmer in the light.
The base of the card is New England Ivy and I used a paper pack called Heritage for the pattern paper. It's technically not Christmas paper, but I just love the colors and the antique look to it.

I did emboss on the pattern papers after I layered them together. I had to be careful not to warp the paper with the heat tool since the papers aren't cardstock weight.

That's pretty much it. I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by. I'll try to post more often now that we're settled into more of a routine.
Heartfelt Hugs,
