First up I used the Holly background folder and then added the tree cut from gold foil card. I added lots of gems to add some bling. I added this to the challenge at Crafting When We Can ~ Make it Sparkle.
For my second card, I embossed the green card. Then I rubbed some white chalk over the card. I had bought a $2 pack of white children's chalks just a week ago and was very impressed on how this turned out. I stamped the Kaisercraft sentiment in white ink and once it had dried, I sprayed the card with some cheap hairspray to set the ink. I rubbed a little gold ink on the star.
Our weekend went well. Our friend's service was very special as he was one very special man. He was interned on Sunday at the cemetery near where he grew up. The day was stunning, and it was a very moving grave side service. Farewell my friend... RIP.
