Here is a card for the challenge at CAS Christmas which has the requirement to have the the colours kraft, red and white.
I have used this IO tree line die similarly a few times before, altering what I stamped/embossed the trees with. This time I used a large, old, SU stamp of French Script to add a little interest to the foliage. I think it almost looks like a smattering of snow. I had to take care how I masked off the lower part of the die cut as Post Its or whatever leave a little residue which can pick up embossing powder, so I used plain copy paper in sections and taped it to my glass mat. I used WOW Opaque Bright White embossing powder.
The sentiment from Sugar Pea Designs, was stamped with Aged Mahogany Distress Oxide ink. Having shortened the length of the tree line I put on the twine before finding a die to use as the mounting panel. Needless to say I couldn't find one which was quite the right size, however this rectangle die was just about right in one dimension, so I cut it from both directions, shortening it in order to make a square.

We have a weekend without workmen, whilst the new plaster in the kitchen dries. Next week the new kitchen installation will commence (hopefully).
