That is very cool! Love it!


Love it! The shabby look is fabulous and I love the brads!


Erika, This Card is a WOW!!! At first glance the edges of the paper pieces look like they are silver embossed. What an awesome way to use smaller strips of paper.. I may have to demo this card to show just how useful scraps could be, even though you set out and cut them from full sheets.
Thank you for this bit of inspiration. It's amazing! You certainly deserve a few atta-girls :)
Hugs, Lourin

I love the Brocade background paper and have kept all of my scraps! Thanks for showing me how to use the all up...this is perfect! Oh, and I do so love Christmas cards!

You rock! Wow! This card is so cool and so darn creative...I guess that's why you're the "Stamping Mama" (or Stamping Diva as I like to think about you).

Thanks for sharing,

Shawn K.

Wow. . . I LOVE this card! Never would have thought of doing that with the papers, but I love how it turned out! Gorgeous!

Michele Robie

Erika, I too thought they were silver embossed and might try that sometime with night of navy as that background? I wish i had more time to stamp.


This is super cute and I love the mix of metals in the brads! Love it!!! TFS

Amy Hoogstad

Wow! This is really unique - I love how subtle it is (i.e. the different earth tones of the brads). Love it!!


What a great design... love the different designer paper and the brads... TFS!
