Peace on Earth Christmas Challenge #12
The little taste of spring seems to have reverted to February weather for today so it seemed like a perfect time to create some Chrismas/winter cards and play along with not one but two different challenges.
The Can You Handle the Pressure challenge is Anything Goes Embossing Folder challenge with a Twist of Green. For my card today, I pulled out a SimonSaysStamp Forest Border embossing folder which was layered on green cardstock. Using the Mood Board for inspiration on the Peace on Earth Christmas challenge #12, I focused on the image with the Christmas tree front and center. I die cut the Tim Holtz Sizzix Woodlands tree in two shades of green layering it the front of the embossed forest background. Undecided about a sentiment, I held my breath as I opted to add the tiny sentiment from Gina K Designs Simple Snowflake stamp set.
Thanks for stopping in for a peek. I appreciate you and your time. Take care and be safe.

Now that is the perfect ef for those evergreens focal images. Green mat layer and sweet sentiment were great adds.
Thanks, Bonnie, I did hesitate on that small sentiment. Just glad it worked and didn’t mess up the finished card.
Lovely! I like the green tree with the white forest behind it.
Thanks, Lisa, I like these challenges as it gives me a reason to use those embossing folders more often.

This is just perfect for both challenges. I love the layered green tree on the embossed background. And the tiny sentiment is exactly right for the card.
Thanks, Johanna, I really hesitate on adding the sentiment and I’m just happy it fit properly.
Beautiful! That embossed background is perfect for that lovely green tree. You did great with the tiny sentiment.
