Winter Wishes

Hi there
Thanks for stopping by today. This is the 3rd card from last Saturday's class. 

I think this card is kind of classy.  Silver and gold embossed trees and some white snowflakes are the only stamped images on the panel.

I made my own corners out of gold card stock. I cut a square and then cut it diagonally. I then added a gold corner on two opposite corners and the sentiment was stamped and embossed  in gold on a label shape and that finishes this card off in no time.

You will notice that as I stamped the tree, I overlapped and changed the colors of the embossing powder as I went along. Stamp from one side to the other. (I started on the right and worked to the left.) I started with the gold tree, heated that one, next stamped 2 trees and embossed with silver. Then reverted back to gold and then back to silver for the last tree. 

After the trees were done I stamped the snowflakes and used white embossing powder

The stamping was done on a black panel that was then attached to a cream card. The cream card seems to fade into the white background of this pic (sorry).

Stamps: Woodware - Forest
Paper/Card Stock
: Black CS, Cream CS
Dies Used: Spellbinders Labels One
Accessories: E
mbossing powder - Black, Gold, White detailed; VersaMark; dimensional foam

I am submitting my card to the following challenges:
I am finishing up on all the prep work, cutting and kitting for my 3 classes at Stampaway. I will be glad when this is finally done. LOL Stampaway classes start in less than 2 weeks. Click here to see the classes that are still available.

Thanks for dropping by and I'll be seeing you all soon.
