Good evening. I have two post to share with you tonight. The first is for the new challenge over on the ABC Christmas Blog where our new theme that started yesterday is
O Christmas Tree
Our fab sponsor this time is: Bugaboo Stamps
This is the card that just did not want to come together, funny as when I look at it now it seems simple enough. The image is from a Hero Arts set that I had picked up last holiday season. It has been embossed in white and then I have used Perfect Pearls to add some colour, up close it has a gorgeous shimmer.
The problem was the layout of the card, this image is quite large and really stood out on its own so I didn't want anything too fussy but when I was trying to pair it up it just kept fading into the bold papers. Finally I have found a layout that works and I have added just some dimensional glitter to decorate the tree and finish it all off.
I hope that you will join us for our challenge. I look forward to seeing your beautiful Christmas Trees.
Lovely card, Cariss, and I know what you mean. I think it has to do with the kraft paper...it fades away somehow, or maybe we're just used to the white.
stunning Christmas tree image and your card and layout is so beautifully presented x
Despite your problems, the card looks lovely honey.
Gorgeous xmas creation
Have a lovely weekend
Gorgeous card Carissa :-) The tree looks fabulous with white embossing and the papers and layout are fab :-)
