Tee Pee Card and Metallic Cardstock!

You could have knocked me over with a feather when I spotted this gorgeous “mirror” card stock at Wal-Mart last night. I screamed to be embossed and turned into a funky metallic retro Christmas tree!

This card was made following a tutorial on Leann’s blog, aren’t her cards the cutest? Do your self a favor and spend some time being inspired by her work.

I embossed my card stock using the Fiskars texture plates and my big shot (tutorial here) because I was pretty sure the Fiskars texture tool (which I hate) would scratch it all up.

The stamps I used are the cheap dollar ones from Jo-Anns I bought during a momentary lapse of reason last year (I have a million xmas stamps already) so I had to use them so I don’t feel guilty about buying them! The Card stock pack was $8 for 20 or 25 12×12 sheets at Wal-Mart and it is glorious, thick and shiny! Have fun with this and thanks Leann for the tutorial!

Hope to see you at readysetcreate.com this weekend for the Fall Crop (I’m craftyvegan), until then, Happy Crafting!
