Christmas Tryptich

I have made another Christmas card - blue and white this time.

I have to say, I really like how this one turned out!  I started with the fabulous die cut in the centre using the cutting edge only from the Spellbinders Elizabeth Border Strip.  I left the die in place and inked through with Tumbled Glass and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks - the background is inked up the same.  The trees and the sentiment are stamped in Versafine and embossed from behind with white detail powder.  The tree is from Creative Expressions Singles by Sam Poole Christmas Trees and the sentiment is from TCP Studios Holly Jolly Clear Set. The die and background are sprayed with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist and I dotted all over with a White Gel Pen to create the snow.  The corners are made with Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers Die ATC and Corners.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Artful Times - Tryptich
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes

Both these challenges are fabulous - please pop over and have a look and see.  Artful Times especially needs your support - the numbers of entries have been dropping off!  I don't know why - its a fabulous challenge blog!

Thank you so much for visiting me - I appreciate it so very much!  Take care.  Christine xxx

So pretty! It is soft and lovely. I'd be afraid to heat emboss on something I die cut and sponged so perfectly. I just know I wouldn't get it right.

A beautiful Christmas card, Chris. I love all the little details - the edges, the corners and the snow. It must have taken a long time to make. Jx
