Bleached Suede Christmas

This card is done with real red, soft suede, bermuda bay and very vanilla. The snowflake background was done by first sponging very vanilla cardstock quite heavily (especially the edges) with soft suede ink. Then I put some bleach on a folded up piece of paper towel (in a flat bottomed container - the plastic box that holds your stamp sets works well) and used it as an "ink" pad. The snowflakes are from the Serene Snowflakes stamp set. After the bleached images were stamped, I stamped a few more snowflakes in Soft Suede ink.

Other supplies used include:

Spiral Punch, Corner Rounder punch, Tag punch, Heard from the Heart stamp set, Soft Suede ribbon, jumbo eyelet, crop-a-dial, stampin' dimensionals.

Hope you like it!
