O’ Christmas Tree

It is hard to believe that Christmas is so close – I really need to plan my Christmas shopping.

 

This week’s Challenge at Holly Jolly is themed around the Christmas Tree.

 

So if you are creating and have a Christmas Tree on your card – please join us!!

 

I recently purchased the Craft Stamper Magazine and Chrissie Stokes created a lovely looking one layer card, so Chrissie’s card has has inspired my project for this weeks challenge.

 

I masked the bottom of the card and then stamped the En Francais stamped over to one side in Versamark.  Then I sponged Bashful Blue and Perfect Plum over the embossing.  The Christmas tree from the Snow Swirled stamp set was then stamped over the sponging in Perfect Plum.

 

I stamped 3 little stars on the tree in Bashful Blue and added some bling and ribbon.  The sentiment is from the Peaceful Wishes stamp set.

 

Here is my card:

Ink: Perfect Plum, Bashful Blue, Versamark
Accessories:  Clear Embossing Powder, Ribbon (retired), Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think this might be the 2nd one layered card I have completed but I love the end result.  What colours shall I play with next ?  Lol.

Meighan, the apparent understatedness of this card belies the work and thought that you have put into this stunning Christmas card.- Wow, it is so full of elegance and beauty and I know that I would be displaying it most prominently were I to receive it.
