WAW - Christmas Anticipated


I am slightly red faced here - December has started off with all sorts of things happening that were unplanned, including the fact I have used the wrong scripture for today's  Word Art Wednesday 
DT card. My bad, I was rushing to get things done and did not double check the dates before printing the verses. Karen, bless her, has been most understanding and accepted it graciously. 

I die cut the feature panel using a S/B Lacy rectangle die, and sponged the panel after embossing it and before removing it from the die.  I used Delicata Gold Glitz, and it really shimmers IRL

I added a triple layer of ribbon and cord, and the wee, embossed nativity...

 then decided that I wanted more shimmer, so used a lemon coloured mica spray, which blobbed a bit.. not a good look.

It also looks green on the black dp

At least the inside came out nice and crisp and clean with just the narrow strip of gold washi tape.
