Silver Christmas Tree - Woodware USA Challenge 43


Pin ItThe theme for this week's Woodware USA challenge is Happy Holidays (WWUSAC43). I decided to use their Tree of Gifts clear stamp set to create this clean and simple, clear Christmas card.

I started the card by stamping the christmas tree with watermark ink onto white card, then heat embossed the image with silver embossing powder. Once this piece was trimmed down, I matted it with some red cardstock and adhered it to the front of a clear card blank. For the inside I cut a strip of white cardstock, then stamped and embossed the 'Merry Christmas' sentiment. This was placed onto a piece of metallic silver cardstock. Lots of shine in this card.

To see what the rest of the design team created, and to find out how you can play along and be entered to win our monthly prize, click HERE.
Just the details… (1) Used silver embossing powder on the tree image, (2) Adhered front layers with foam tape for extra dimension, (3) For the sentiment on the inside I used a sparkly red embossing powder, (4) A look at the closed card - you can still see the silver cardstock inside, but not the personal message panel.

Challenges used for this card:
