Two Trees.

Time once again for the girls in the 
Christmas Card Club to show our makes.
The theme was chosen by Granmargaret and is
Embossing Wet or Dry.
I decided to go with Dry embossing
mainly because I had an EF already out on my desk!
This one is called 'Starry Night'
and  came free with Making Cards Magazine.

I had a quick look through my pile of used cards
and found two tree  that were fairly CAS
and would work with what I had in mind.

The first one is actually on a blue background
but my camera is playing funny tricks again
and it looks more white than anything.
I trimmed the card front down to size
and ran through the EF.
The simple tree design shows up well.
In fact I think it looks more like it is snowing!
The base card is made from black cardstock.
I had a small piece of the front left over so 
used it along the bottom to place the wording on.
The sentiment is a black sticker with some
matching black stars.
I used blue card stock for the inside of the card 
with more of the same black stickers.

The second card I used had quite an abstract
tree design which i simply trimmed down
and backed with a matching piece of gold
cardstock which I ran through the EF.
I then adhered to gold mirror card.The base card is made 
from the gold cardstock.

Sentiment is a gold Sticker.
I used more gold mirror card inside
and used another piece of cardstock 
that I ran through the EF. 

Two more  to add to my growing pile of Christmas Cards.
I hate to say it but Christmas is not that far away!

Am loving your 'two-fers'. You always make something that is lovely, from something else. Amazing. I like both of these, but really like the effect over the embossing over that pretty tree. Love that modern tree on #2 in all it's gold glory. TFS & Hugs. Rest up from your trip.

Morning Mrs A - visiting you wearing my "Sparkles Christmas" hat today! Two gorgeous cards - and I love that embossing folder. That's a magazine freebie that must have passed me by - unusual as I generally watch them like a hawk for useful ones!

Jenny L said...

Hi Mrs A,
2 wonderfully created cards, and great embossing folders used too.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Both terrific. I especially like the second one.

No need to snitch on me in the playground . . . Miss already has sneaky suspicions! I've posted lookouts . . . it'll be ok!

Hugs, Sarn xxx
