Hello again, still only 145 days until Christmas but here is another card for your inspiration. This card was made using the same Docrafts Filigree Christmas Tree but this time gold embossing powder was used and then the image cut out before mounting onto black card (using the Pinflair gel under the embossing). Two more layers of black/mirri card were used and then attached to the black card base. The glary greeting is again printed onto Safmat as on the previous card. Hope this inspires you all a little even though its only August but we crafters have to make an early start don't we!!!

Oh Christmas Tree .....

Hello again, since there is only 145 days left to Christmas we thought it was time to make up a few cards as inspiration to all our customers. Today's contribution has been created using the Filigree Christmas Tree stamp from Docrafts and we have stamped this image onto vellum using Versamark and then embossed with a gold/black embossing powder. We then attached the vellum to black card/gold mirri card and decorated the tree with card candy from the Wedding Collection. The sentiment was printed onto Safmat and then mounted onto gold mirri card (apologies for the glare). The vellum was attached to the card using Pinflair Gel just under each of the card candy baubles to secure and then we used a gold peel off border as a finishing touch. The photograph does not really do it justice but hope you like it anyway.
