Metallic Winter Trees

If I ever get tired of metallics, it certainly won't be before Christmas!  While copper is my favourite, I also have a great fondness for gold and silver so, not being able to choose between them, I made one card in each colour!

I think I like the silver card the best

While the colours are different, the methodology is the same for each card and it's quick and simple!

The base card is a piece of A5 card folded in half with a metallic layer (corresponding to the heat embossing I used) on top.

The gold was the first one I made
I started by giving the top layer a good wipe with my embossing buddy, stamped the ground piece with Versamark and heat embossed it.  I then heat embossed the trees and reindeer, being careful to avoid over-heating the ground section.  I added the snow by stamping in Versamark.

Whilst copper remains my favourite metallic, I'm not sure I like it so much in this card!

I stamped the banner in Stazon ink onto corresponding metallic foil sheet before cutting out with the matching die from the Bunch of Banners framelit set.

I know, here in Australia, Christmas is in Summer but I still like a traditional wintry scene on Christmas cards!

Thank you for visiting
'Til next time!
