The challenge is "Oh Christmas Tree". Now I don't happen to own a proper Christmas tree stamp. I think I have a digi stamp, but at the time I was doing my card I wasn't able to access my data. Anyway, this is a tree, and it's Christmas, so it will have to do. Hope you agree.
My usual 6 x 6 inch card. The stamps I used are Denami Designs Christmas Script Background and Star Swirl Tree and I have had them for about 9 or 10 years. Now I've used them again I don't know why they were relegated to the drawer! I cut a piece of blue vellum to cover the card front and wrap around the back. I stamped the Script stamp in white onto the vellum and heat embossed with Ranger Frosted Crystal embossing powder and attached it to the card front. Onto a narrow strip of the blue vellum I again stamped the Script stamp, this time with Brilliance Pearlescent Ice Blue and heat embossed with the same powder to give a different effect, although the difference is quite subtle. I embossed a piece of white card stock with Crafts Too embossing folder Snowflakes, wrapped the vellum strip round it, matted it onto silver mirri and attached to the centre. The star swirl tree was stamped with the blue ink and the same embossing powder and matted onto silver mirri. It wouldn't be Christmas without a bit of glitter so I added blue glitter to the star, and a bit of bling to the corners. The picture is not very good I'm afraid. It is quite shadowy where the vellum is loose because I only attached it to the back of the card where it overlapped and underneath the snowflake panel. In real life it looks better. I am really pleased that the embossed script turned out so well.
Well that's it from me. Hope you are all well. I know my friend Sue P is unwell so please get well soon Sue!!!!
