Embossed Trees

Welcome to Merry Monday where Kathy is today challenging us to feature a tree on our Christmas cards.  



My card came together quickly after I found a dry-embossed panel featuring a tree which I'd already stuck behind the die-cut Christmas Frames die.



As the bulk of the card was already completed, all I needed to do was put it on a card base!  I chose a Smoky Slate card base and embossed the tree again on that after die-cutting it with the stitched rectangle die. 

I placed a few silver CTMH sticky-back sequins on the card and was done!  Here's a close-up so you can actually see there are trees on my card :)



Thanks for visiting.  The rest of the design team have done marvelous things with this challenge so be sure to check them out.

Products used:

Cardstock:  White, Black, Basic Gray, Smoky Slate (SU)
Accessories:  Christmas Frames die (SSS), Reindeer Silhouette EF (Couture Creations), sequins (CTMH)

Cheers
Karren

What a great embossing folder. I thought I'd had enough of them but you just made me realize that there are still some goodies out there I would love to invest in ;o)
