25 DOC MISFITS - From Santa

City Sidewalks is one of my new favorite collections by Pink Paislee.  The pages give you that sense of a vintage style Christmas and make you feel warm & fuzzy.

I knew the type of card I wanted to make and I didn't hesitate to pull this paper to make my idea come to life.  It's basically a card that looks like a gift, wrapped by Santa and left under the tree.  I used mostly gold tones throughout and distressed the edges with walnut stain distress ink.  The ornaments were made with a Memory Box ornament die, and a regular circle punch.  I added Recollections gold glitter to the edges by heat & sticking it with special Stampin' Up powder.  I also used a very pretty Martha Stewart ribbon that I've been hoarding in my stash and finished it off with crystal sprays, a Tim Holtz button and some bling.

I love the look and feel of the card, and I hope you do too.
