Sandy Claus is Coming to Town--Day Four



SANDY Claus is Coming to Town!
 
 
Yes...SANDY Claus! All of this week, the Stampendous and Dreamweaver teams are playing with a mix of their products, along with some wonderful, SAND-ABLE papers from Core'dinations. Join us as we sand our way to the "core" of all things Christmas and the Holiday season. Of course, there will be prizes, and we give away the best...this time with a mix of fun Core'dinations products as well. To be one of three prize package winners, follow the posted link lists each day, leave a comment, and winners will be selected from these comments at the beginning of next week. Here is what you might win:
Here's what I'm showing off today:

 
 
First, I sprayed the back of the Large Damask Stencil LX7001 with Strawberry Daiquri and Metallic Gold Memory Mists and ran them through my Cuttlebug with Color Core Core'dinations Card Stock and the Rubber Embossing Mat.  (Sadly, you can't see the shimmer it created in this photo).  I waited for the card stock to dry before I sanded it to reveal the beautiful core color. 
As I waited, I used Metallic Gold Embossing Paste on White Canvas Textured Core'dinations with the LL 3009 Christmas Script Stencil. This had to dry as well.
 I used the DL3005 Holly & Berries Die Cut with Color Silk Card Stock.  The flourish is from the gorgeous Stampendous Jumbo Cling Rubber Poinsettia stamp set.  I used Gold Delicata ink and Stampendous Clear Embossing Powder on vellum.  I stamped it twice, using the extra edges on the sides of another piece.  I attached it to the white card stock and fussy cut the edges.  After that, it was a simple matter of assembly, using May Arts Ribbon and a few rhinestones.  
Leave a comment for me, and head to the next on the list:
