Lovely Branches

Peace On Earth Christmas Challenge #3

Working on some Christmas cards and decided to play along with the Anything Christmas challenge #3 with the Peace on Earth Christmas Challenge blog. The inspiration board intrigued me with the black and white plaids and the hints of red.

Using my The Crafters Workshop buffalo plaid stencil, I inked and die cut a section of the panel, stamped my GKD Christmas Joy tree in red and using the Spellbinders oval and scalloped oval nestabilities it was ready for assembly. However, my card just looked a little unfinished so there was a piece of glossy photo cardstock on my desk and decided to emboss it with the SSS Kaleidoscope embossing folder for more texture. The stamped sentiment is also from the same GKD Christmas Joy stamp set.

Thanks for stopping in for a peek. Have a great day.

  1. The buffalo plaid is lovely in the corner. The EF really adds nice texture. The red tree is a nice pop of color. It’s always fun to see the old GKD sets used and I think, Oh I need to get that out and use it. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. You nailed this one perfectly. A little bit of embossing for interest, plaid and a pop of red combined into a pretty design.

  3. Beautiful card and a great a great take on our mood board! Thank you for joining our challenge at Peace On Earth!
