Muse: ChristmasVisions

My turn to be your inspiration at Muse: ChristmasVisions! It's now definitely not too early to start thinking about making Christmas cards, so I hope you can find something to inspire you. I decided to make two versions of my card for today: 

For the first one, I used one of my all-time favourite embossing powders, verdigris, for these arty Christmas trees. I bordered the tree panel with a strip of gold pearl paper to play off the gold flecks in the trees, then embossed the sentiment in gold. 

This time, I used three different metallic embossing powders for the trees, but still kept the gold for the border and the sentiment. Apart from taking time to make sure I aligned the three trees correctly (it's a wood block stamp, so I had to go back to my trusty Stamp-a-ma-Jig instead of using my MISTI), this was a quick an easy design. 
You have two weeks to come and play along! 

Supplies: white cardstock, gold pearl paper, Artful Stamper tree & Technique Tuesday Jingle All the Way stamps, Versamark ink, Wow verdigris, copper pearl, pale gold pearl, silver & pirate's gold embossing powders, fun foam
