I was in Costco this weekend, and I saw that they had their Christmas cards out. Yay! I am fully justified in posting Christmas stuff regularly. I've been cooking up cards that I can use in a Christmas card buffet, and this is one of the newest. I posted some cards that use the snowflakes from this set, but this is the main image. I love swirly things, and I LOVE Christmas, (especially the tree) so this is a perfect set for me. What I like about this card is the texture of it. I stamped the notes on a piece of Very Vanilla, and then used Versamark to stamp the tree. I then applied some clear embossing powder and heated it up with my heat tool. Once the paper had cooled a little, I daubed my sponge into some Old Olive, and went in small circles from the inside of the tree out. After each application I wiped off the excess ink from the embossed area, revealing the resisted imaged below. I'm envisioning doing the same with some silver and navy ink as well.
