Triple Embossed Tree
The red and green theme is for Winter Wonderland's challenge so I began with a red card, when I matted the green onto it it looked like something was missing so a small layer of textured gold card has been added.
Then it was time to follow Christmas Card Challenges sketch and cut three red patterned papers and lay them on the green. At this point I chose to add a red ribbon with trees in it to tie in with Jingle Belles holiday bingo challenge.
The tree is for 52 Christmas Card Throwdown's challenge this week, use a chipboard embellishment. The tree has been stained green with Distress stain and then triple embossed with clear embossing powder. On the last layer of clear I added some green mica powder which shows a little better in the small photo. Before the last layer could dry I embossed it with a rubber stamp inked up in Archival green.
The tree is mounted on another piece of gold card and stuck on with foam pads.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
52 Christmas Card Throwdown - Embellishment, chipboard.
Jingle Belles - Holiday bingo, emboss, tree, ribbon
Winter Wonderland - Red and Green
Christmas Card Challenges - Sketch
