Fusion Joy

Playing along with the Fusion Challenge - Sparkly Christmas:

This was indeed a labor of love...not a quick CAS design in the least :)  I started out by die cutting all those little circles you see, Next the majority of them were stamped with a design and heat embossed in silver.  Then they were placed to create the wreath.

Next, comes some scrunched up tissue wrap to add the musical component of the design.  A few mirrored stars, a red bow and the die cut sentiment complete the card.  A little time consuming but I'm very happy with the end result!

Here's what I used:
Paper:  Bazzill Marshmallow and SU! Brushed Silver
Ink:  Versamark
Stamps:  Clearly Besotted Geometric Style II
All the other stuff:  Big Shot Pro, Clearly Besotted Geometric Style II Die Collection, Penny Black Creative Dies - Love and Joy, WOW Metallic Platinum Sparkle Embossing Glitter, heat gun, embossing buddy, SU! ribbon, Tim Holtz Composer Tissue WrapTim Holtz Mirrored stars, dimensional foam tape
