I used a Sizzix die to cut out a grunge board tree sprayed with 2 colors of green Glimmer Mist ... laid on the background of red Glimmer Mist and stencil ... added a strip of hymnal page and jingle bells accented with the poinsettia at the base of the tree ... I did just a little shadow work on the edges of the page with the negative of the tree grunge board cut out .... stamped Merry Christmas with Versa Mark then embossed with fine gold embossing powder
This is a pure joy to make .... it's a tip-in instead of a Christmas Card ... I used red Glimmer Mist for the background with a stencil and 3 greens sprayed over each other for the tag .... then took a page from my hymnal and crumpled it and used distressed linen inkpad to do direct to paper on the high spots then over that I used metalic gold inkpad to do some of the high spots, heat set that ... used ARTchix German scrap wings behind my lovely image and embellished with fabric poinsettes and ribbon then added just a little bling ....
