Christmas...all roads lead home!

Hi Paper Lovers, it's Liz again from Liz's Paper Loft!  Wow, I can't believe that my Guest Designing week at Everyday Cricut is almost over!  :)  I've had a blast creating a variety of themes for you.  So far I've done Halloween, Birthday, Fall and now it's time for Christmas!  Again today I went with nontraditional colors.  While making this card, I thought this would be a pretty 25th anniversary card too, with a few tweaks!
 


 
After cutting all the pieces, I inked the edges.  Stamped the sentiment on the handmade banner and curled it for more pop!

I added a bit of gold stickles to the berries on the holly cut.  Then ribbon and hemp bows with a square sparkly button.  No glitter today, but still plenty of bling!  :) To see how I crinkle my seam binding ribbon, click HERE!

It's hard to see but I embossed the cream paper with an embossing folder!

Now it's Giveaway Time!!!  All you have to do is leave a comment with your contact info here and on my blog!  I will pick one winner for this Limited Edition Metallic Hemp on Saturday, October 20, and announce it on my blog!
 

 
I will be back tomorrow with my last project :( for Everyday Cricut!

The December 25 card really hits home with me. Christmas is so special for us as it is usually the only time we can get our entire family together each year. I love the yesteryear feeling this design brings and makes me nostalgic for Chrismases we celebrated with our parents.
