I've got a card for two challenges: Muse ChristmasVisions and Merry Monday. Merry Monday is looking for a card inspired by a Christmas carol, while at MCV, Maria Fischer is the week's muse.
My carol inspiration is O Christmas Tree; from Maria's card, I was inspired by the graphic tree image, the small sentiment across the bottom of the card and the polka dots. Here's my take:
Maria used a stencil... I have a small tree stencil that also has circles, but a day of failures convinced me to try something else. I thought this tree stamp had a similar feel with its snowflakes standing in for circles. I started by sponging some distress ink in the centre of the white panel then added a few sparkly spatters. The tree is embossed in white. I stamped the sentiment three times before trimming the panel and layering it on the green polka dot paper. A gold star sequin finishes the card.
Supplies: white cardstock, Echo Park Holly Jolly Christmas patterned paper, Prima Merry Christmas Tree & Technique Tuesday Jingle All the Way stamps, Versamark & mowed lawn distress inks, Wow white embossing powder, homemade Perfect Pearls mist, Studio Calico gold star sequin
