I was in the mood to make a monochromatic card for Christmas this year, and white seemed like a fun color to try.
A few months ago, I had found an interesting embossing template that was a Christmas tree and decided to use that. Originally, I wanted to have some mulberry paper behind the torn piece of paper with the tree on it. I tried to organize my craft supplies this year, which means I cannot find my mulberry paper right now. And no local craft stores seem to have it. So I grabbed my glue pens and some glitter and went with sparkle instead of fiber.
I must say that I am happy with the results. The photo isn’t the best, but I wanted to try to show off the embossed tree on the torn panel of paper in the middle. The swirls are Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Up! glitter.
My favorite thing about the cards this year is that my son helped with them. He embossed all of the trees for me and did great job. I love making our Christmas cards every year, and having him help made it that much more special this year.
The other great thing about this card design is that it was pretty simple to make. The embossed panel was cut to be about a half inch larger than the stencil then about a quarter inch was torn off each side using a tearing edge (at first I thought this was a silly tool, but it quickly became one of my favorites). Then on the main card I drew swirls with glue pens and put glitter on them. Once they were dry, I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to raise the panel from on the card. Easy peasy.
