Green and red decorative paper with a fun angle

Another Thank you card for this Christmas season!!  I glued three dark green strips of  coordinating decorative paper onto the corner of a white piece of cardstock and trimmed them to the edges.  I embossed the balance of this layer using the Decorative Dots embossing folder (SU) and a hammer as I could not get the sandwich to fit in my Big Shot.  I like using the hammer because it allows a more random embossing of the texture.  I found the chalk board greeting in my little stash bucket, adhered it with double sided tape and then added a red metallic button die cut to which I had already tied some white fiber using two knots!!  A bit of a cooler palette for this card - I have been carrying around this paper for years and it is nice to finally find a great way to use it!!
