It's time for some mid-way inspiration at DCC & Friends. Our theme this month is "Christmas Time" and the challenge is sponsored by the fabulous Visible Image who will be sending £35 worth of stamps to the very lucky winner.
I have made my DT card using the Visible Image Tree Trio set of stamps and I'd like to enter this card in the Visible Image Christmas Challenge.
I started by using Distress Ink Antique Linen around the edges of an 8" x 8" card blank and then matting and layering gold mirri, blue Papermania textured card and a paper from MCS Quintessential Country Garden to which I added snowflakes before printing. I also wrapped lace, threaded with a chipboard sentiment, around the layers before attaching to the card.
I stamped the largest of the trees in blue ink and double embossed it. I then used DI Antique Linen to colour tint the card before matting onto gold mirri and using foam pads to attach to the card.
I stamped the smallest tree four times in a vertical line and double embossed them. I coloured the card with DI, cut off one tree, and raised the panel on foam pads.
I cut out the remaining small tree and fixed it at an angle in a bottom corner then finished the card with gold candi.
