The challenge over at CAS Christmas is to make a card suitable for a chap.
Here I began by die cutting a couple of fir trees and inking the trunks with Versamark. I sprinkled a little distress embossing powder over them and heat set. then I inked the rest of the trees and randomly added embossing powder in two shades of green, plus some verdigris powder.
I then inked just the right hand side of the trees and added some sea foam white powder, hopefully to give the impression of snow.
These were stuck to a front panel (Creative Dies wonky stitched frame) of the card beside a square aperture (SSS die) through which a little dry embossed snow (Sheena Douglass EF) can be seen.
The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed in Gold!
It's also for the challenge at CAS Mix Up this time.
Here we have the layered embossing powders, stamping, dry embossing and die cutting.
Looking at where I positioned the trees, it looks as though I should have put the 'snow' on the left side of the trees, or put them on the other side of the aperture! I may change them over!
