I always like to emboss the magazine papers because they are rather thin and I like the added texture. I used Spellbinders scalloped circle dies to make the stage opening and backgrounds for the sentiment and a border punch for the red strip across the bottom. The sentiment and holly leaves are Sparkle N Sprinkle stamps. I added super fine glitter to the berries and leaves, teeny tiny bling in the border and on the sentiment, a poinsettia brad from CTMH, and a triple loop bow.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
