Christmas Trees

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and enjoying your weekend.  Hubby is busy cooking Sunday roast so just thought I would pop by and post a quick share with you.

These cards are going to be one of my bulk makes for christmas.

I used a stamp from Hot Off The Press that I got as a freebie set in a magazine a couple of years ago.  I stamped it with versamark and then embossed with gold embossing powder.  The little pot it stands in was cut out of mirror card and a little gold bow added.  The edges of the image was coloured with a little tumbled glass distress ink and then mounted onto gold mirror card.  For the background I used my snowflake embossing folder and then lightly dusted with blue chalk.  This again was edged with tumbled glass distress ink and mounted onto gold mirror card.  I wrapped some organza ribbon round the edge and embellished 
with a gold poinsettia, some pearls and a sentiment.

This is my second one that I did in a silver colourway.

Thanks for popping by and would love to hear what you think.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
