This card is 6 inches square the card base is Neenah Linen texture, the Stocking is stamped with Versamark on shimmery white cardstock then heat embossed with Ranger detail gold powder. I layered it to a scrap of the shimmery green i bought at paperzone in Portland then trimmed that with mini pinking shear deco scissors. ( its up on pop dots) the red texture cardstock is from Bazzill, and the paisley pp is from Daisy D's. the gold ribbon is from one of those QVC anna griffin scrapbooker multi mega pack kit things ( from my gotta buy everything scrapbooking phase a few years back) at any rate the colors just about the same as the powder after it melts...
the Merry Christmas is stamped with Versafine Onyx black ink, then punched with a Blue sized scalloped marvy rectangle punchie, then i used a piece of the gold ( elastic cord ) from the last SU Christmas mini book to tie it on the ribbon.
there's some machine thread in brown on this too.
so far i can tell you one noise i really DO NOT LIKE TO HEAR and that is the sound of the electric type writer in the office. we don't use it much, in fact i never use it, but the summary for the 1099's did not want to line up in the printer, so, we had June type it... ( yucky noise, can't wait for it to die... think you cant buy typewriter's anymore either) cross your fingers haha.
