Best Wishes for the Holiday Season - Collage Paper Stamping

Christmastime CMS352 stamp set has several sentiments with fabulous vintage fonts. For this card I wanted the font to be in the forefront in a different way than the others, so I used the following Collage Paper technique.
Using my Stamp Platform, I stamped the sentiment on Plain Collage Paper, and then embossed it with silver embossing powder. 
I stamped over it a second time  and embossed it with black embossing powder.. Then I stamped over the back ground with the Music background stamp from the Music and Advent stamp set in Hickory Smoke Archival Ink. I stamped it in many different directions so it looked kind of like a collage.
I wanted to overlay it on something soft and vintage in a different color scheme,  so I pulled these older stamp sets, Festive Sketch CMS283 and Holiday Drawings CMS284. I stamped them in Hickory Smoke Archival Ink onto Distress Mixed Media Heavystock, then watercolored with Distress Markers.
The next step was to adhere the collage paper onto the stamped background with Distress Collage Medium. Once it was dry I cut the sentiment out with one of the small Stitched Rectangle dies. I then cut a larger piece of silver metallic paper to be a mat and popped it up with dimensional adhesive over the place where I cut it out.
I added a little shimmer to the card with Brushed Pewter Distress Crayon.
The last few touches were to sew around the edge with silver metallic thread and attach some Ideaology Nailheads.

Oh, my gosh! Even more cards! I love them all, but think this is a favorite! I love the softness the collage paper, over the stamped images, creates; it is so beautiful! I don't always get perfect results with collage medium, but for a result like this, I'll try again.... So stunning #timholtzchristmas2018

Lord have Mercy! I finally got around to reading your post, and I am in awe at how this came together! Your ornament panel is gorgeous and adding the stamped paper over top is just genius with amazing results. I am particularly drawn to your metallic stitching. Still thinking this is is prettiest! And when I read down and saw there was a drawing and I actually managed to visit before the deadline I almost spit out my coffee! I'm ALWAYS late for these things! Merry Christmas!
