Christmas Tree

Challenges

Papertake - Sketch

C.R.A.F.T. (14) - Embossing

The image has been done with a Cuttlebug embossing folder onto parchment paper with a stamped greeting added. I have also added glitter glue for some sparkle. I stuck it to the card using a 'sticky sheet' thinking the glue wouldn't show, how wrong was I? Never mind, lesson learnt, I do however quite like the mottly look it gives, goes with the background paper. The flowers are Jak Heath's poinsettias, as used in a previous post, but this time I used the reverse side and heat embossed them with holographic EP and added gems. I'm rather pleased with the results.

I really love this card Christine - the colour pallette is fab! The embossing forlder is one of my favourites and I love the effect on parchment.
