Christmas in August.

With Christmas just around the corner it's time to think about starting those cards. The Dream team will making cards for the holidays all through this month.  I decided to use an older stencil that I just received for this card, I really like this stencil (LL 499) Christmas Stocking. I used the double glitter technique and Dreamweaver Double-sided Mounting Paper for this card. The glitter I used was Glitter Ritz microfine glitter in the colors: Fire Red, Moss Green and Dark Gold. Don't forget to use the yummy Hawaiian Coconut soap that Dreamweaver sells, on the back of your stencil. WHY? Because it makes it easier to remove the stencil from the sticky surface of your paper.
