Winter Birthday

It's been a while since I've played with any challenges and believe it or not, amid all the craziness of Christmas preparations I took some time to make a card for two challenges.

The first is The Friday Mash-up, FM139, one of my favourite challenges to play.
The challenge this week is to do a "winter" project with embossing.

The next is The Paper Players #176.  Their challenge is a white on white theme with a neutral or metallic.  I chose the metallic.

Here's my card:

Here are the details:

Paper: Whisper White, Silver
Stamp sets: Bring on the Cake, Flower Shop
Tools: Northern Flurry EF, Pansy Punch, Ovals Framelits, Mini Snowflake Punch
Ink: Platinum
Accessories: Basic Pearls, Silver Embossing Powder

Oh Christmas Tree!

Today's challenge at Catherine and Cathy Create is all about Christmas Trees.  I've been making a lot of Christmas Cards lately and love using the set Evergreen; I think I've made at least 4 different designs using this set.  Here is one I created especially for this challenge.

Here's a close-up of the tree:


Stamp Set: Evergreen
Paper: Whisper White, Silver, Sliver Glimmer
DSP: Winter Frost
Ink: Old Olive
Embossing Powder: Iridescent Ice
Accessories: 1/8" Silver Ribbon
