Faithful Gold and Silver

Tuesday, December 9, 2014

So much to do and so little time between now and Christmas!  Wow!  But I still need a few more cards so I am playing along with some challenges!

I love Debbie's Challenge over at Merry Monday, just perfect for some Christmas inspiration!

And this is my second card for the current Addicted to CAS challenge:

A really simple CAS design.  Simply embossed the tree in both gold and silver, added a sentiment in black (my 4th color) and then added some embossing paste snow.

Here's what I used:
Paper:  Bazzill Marshmallow
Ink:  Versamark and Ranger Jet Black Archival
Stamps:  Penny Black Winter Green and Altenew Lyrical Script
All the other stuff:  Hero Arts Gold and Silver embossing powders, embossing buddy, heat gun, embossing paste, Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil, MISTI

Challenges entered:

Back soon with more my sweet friends...
