The One Layer Christmas Card Challenge is helping me make cards I can afford to mail this year! When I saw the challenge twist of green, I decided to use the little Tim Holtz Three Trees embossing folder. My first thought was to emboss on off-white & sponge the trees with green ink, but I changed my mind. I have several 12x12 card packs I got for just a few dollars & one includes this pretty textured green. The card edges are distressed & brushed with Picket Fence Distress Paint. I also brushed a bit of the paint on the trees before covering them with 2 different Stickles. SSS Falling Snow stencil was used with white pigment ink--love the soft effect. These Heidi Swapp stickers are a great size for cards & I didn't have to worry about getting a good impression stamping on the textured cardstock.
Pretty simple design, but I like it & could make some more if I need them at the last minute. I'm also entering the SSS Flickr challenge to use embossing. Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.
Almost forgot--Fritz is 2 yrs old today! He was such a challenging puppy, but has turned into the best dog & we sure do love him. Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.
