Amy has a monthly challenge called Woodblock Wednesday & I loved pulling out Art Impressions Small Pine Spray (over 10 yrs old) & the 2010 DeNami sentiment.
I love PPP Layered Tree die which can be used for many different looks depending on colors & techniques. This time I wanted a special card for a relative who is big on Christmas trees & uses only traditional green & red for all her decorating.
I double embossed a white panel with Zing green glitter ep & then die cut the sections. There were a couple little spots where the embossing came off, but they were easily repaired. The trunk was die cut from a brown scrap & the star was stacked 3 high with the top layer being silver metallic cardstock. I've never used the little ornaments in the set & they're so cute. I die cut them from red metallic cardstock which stood out perfectly with the shimmery tree.
Discovered that glue dots were an ideal way to attach the star & the ornaments. I like the subtle white embossed snowflake background & only an inside sentiment to let the tree take center stage! I'm entering SSS Monday, SSS Wednesday & Christmas Kickstart.
My final project is for the December Poppystamps challenge. This may be the most fun I've ever had making a tag! I pulled out Poppystamps Tunnel Tags & Sloping Hillside dies. SSS Monday, SSS Wednesday & The Snippets Playground.
