Christmas Cards all Year Round-August challenge

Christmas Cards all year Round has a new challenge for the month of August and it is Fussy and Fancy. 

For my card I did an Iris Folding technique with a THIS stamp from Stamp N Plus. I used the same patterned paper {by My Mind's Eye} for the iris folding and love the way it turned out. The stamp itself was stamped with Stampin Up in and then embellished with pearls from Want 2 Scrap. I used distress ink and an ink blender on the edges of the stamped image. It is matted with Real Red cardstock from Stampin Up.

For the card base is red and it is by DMD Inc.It's a 5x7 card , which is a new size for me, but I like it. The black cardstock is by Recollections and the patterned papers are by Basic Grey and Anna Griffins. I used a Spellbinders die to create the diamond border on the gold patterned paper and then embellished it again with pearls by Want 2 Scrap. The holly and sentiment rub-ons are by Bo Bunny. 

Thanks for looking and be sure to check out the challenge at Christmas cards all Year Round.
