Merry Monday 259, Silver and gold Christmas card





A new challenge for Merry Monday this week.  Here is the fun challenge.

Add a Christmas Tree to your card.  Now, I have a couple sets new this season with trees I could have used, but I ended up going back to Lovely as a Tree.  That set has been in the catalog for as long as anyone can remember! It's a great set and never goes out of style.

I embossed in white using my Whisper White craft ink pad.  Then after I heated it, I added another layer of white and sprinkled on some Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  I know you can't see the glitter in the photo, but it's very pretty.

I used paper from 2 different DSP sets, Merry Little Christmas and Bundle of Love.  I have been dying to use something from Bundle of Love, it's the gold piece on the background. It worked so well with the black piece from Merry Little Christmas.

I punched out a glimmer paper star using an old tiny punch for the tree top.
