I whipped up this simple, pretty card to put in my stash
of Christmas cards for this year.
It was inspired by the new challenge at
And since it features a tree,
I am entering it into the new challenge at
Below is a closeup to try to show the shimmer:
How I made it:
I stamped the tree image from Lovely As A Tree by Stampin' Up!
with Versamark ink onto Glossy white card stock.
It was heat embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.
It was cut out with an Oval Nestabilities die.
A Brocade Blue card stock mat was cut with a Scalloped Oval Nestabilities die.
I sponged Bashful Blue ink over the top of the embossed tree image.
The oval die cut tree image was glued to the Brocade Blue mat.
I then attached small rhinestones on each scallop.
Glue shimmery card stock to Brocade Blue card stock for the front.
Adhere a piece of red satin ribbon flat across the front,
tucking the ends underneath for a more finished look
Attach the matted image on top of the card front,
off center, with dimensional pop dots.
Tie a small bow and attach it with hot glue
to the top of the flat ribbon strip.
I use Fray Check along the edges of my cut ribbon
to help keep the ends of the bows from fraying.
Thanks for looking =)
