OH CHRISTMAS TREE, OH CHRISTMAS TREE...

I'm back with another "white" Christmas card.  Are you getting tired of them yet?  I'm not!  I have an idea for at least one more then I'll move on to something else...but I'm not making any promises.  Ha!

Before I get started though, I'd like to take a minute and wish Our Craft Lounge a Happy, Happy Birthday!  They turn 2 this month and want you to know they are so very "Thankful For YOU"!!!  How are they celebrating, you might wonder?  By giving away stamp sets!  Gotta LOVE that, right?  Make sure you read this post for the official rules.

Basically, there are three ways to win.  The first way is to visit The Lounge (Monday through Friday) and comment (one per day) on the awesome samples they will be showing.  Easy Peasy!  The second way is to visit them on their Facebook page (Monday through Friday) and comment (again, one per day) on the samples.  Seems pretty simple!  The third way...pssst...see that blinkie button on my side bar?  Yeah, the one there at the top???  Well if you copy the code and paste it on your blog then leave a comment at The Lounge linking back to your blog to show you have it posted, yep, you could win a stamp set!  It seriously doesn't get any easier than that!!!  Make sure you stop by here to read the official rules before you play along!  Oh...one more thing!  They are posting a daily winner's list that you can check to see if you won.  Good luck!

And now, onto my card...over the weekend, I mentioned an a-mazing Christmas tree...well, here it is!  Isn't it a beauty?  The stamp set is Ole St. Nick from OCL (same set as Santa from my last post).  The tree was stamped with Black Soot on Neenah CS then colored with Copics.  Then it was sponged with Blush Blossom going all the way from the outside edge working towards the tree, Ruby Red going from the edge halfway to the tree and Riding Hood Red focusing on the outside edge.  Once sponged, Glossy Accents were put on the ornaments and left to dry.  The layers were made with Tex's double embossing technique (you can watch her video tutorial here).  What you can't see in the pic...DANG it's sparkly!  The snowflakes are a Sizzix decorative strip that were VersaMarked, sprinkled with a mixture of Heat & Stick Powder and Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder.  The buttons and wired ribbon are both from my stash.  The main image and snowflakes are popped up on Dimensionals and Pop Dots.

Copic coloring:

Tree:  G29, G28, G24, G21, T4, T2  Ornaments:  R08, R05, R02  Bow:  R08, R05, R02, R00

Hi there,

I got to your blog through the Craft Your Days Away Challenge. Your card is beautiful. I love the snowflakes with the buttons. You do really lovely white cards! (I looked at some of your other ones also) I love how they are all different though, whether you layered the embossing panels or for this one you made the tree the focal point by putting the tree in the midde of the embossed panels and rounding the edges. It really works! Wishing you all the best!
