Remember those techniques that a few years ago everyone was doing and now nobody does them? That's what I did today. First, I did flocking. There are a few people still into flocking, but they are the same people who aren't afraid of glitter - the techniques are equally messy. However, flocking leaves you with a card you just want to pet over and over, like a kitty. I used red and white flocking on Santa's suit, and it is so soft!
The second technique I used was the metallic leafing pen - remember when we used to put that stuff on everything? Now I hardly use it, except on Christmas cards. It is a lot harder to use on a circle than on a straight edge.
Finally, I stuck a spiral clip on my image and tied a couple of ribbons on it. I haven't done that in years! It still looks good, and only hardcore stampers know how passé it is. The image is from the ever useful holiday tags set from a•muse studio; it's just such an essential set of images for holidays cards, and they all look perfect inside a 2 inch circle!
