Four Trees


I don't know why I haven't pulled out my embossing powder much lately because I absolutely LOVE the way embossing looks. Don't you?

This 4.25" x 5.5" card showcases black embossing...on white and tone on tone. I felt the black on black was so elegant that it called for some elegant bling to compliment it. Thus the clear sparkles.

The card was inspired by this week's sketch on 2Sketches4You. Thanks for another great sketch, Kazan!

Close To My Heart products used: Snow Flurries Stamp Set (D1384), Holiday Trinkets Stamp Set (D1366), Tulip Cardstock (X5753), White Daisy Cardstock (1385), Black Cardstock (1386), Versamark Pad (Z891), Black Embossing Powder (Z670), 3D Foam Tape (Z1151), Corner Rounder (Z678), Clear Sparkles (Z1104).

Don't forget it's Stampaganza this month (buy 2 stamp sets and get one free. See the left side of my blog for details). The two stamp sets I used on this card are WONDERFUL holiday stamp sets. If you were to buy them both, you could choose a $22.95 or less stamp set absolutely FREE (gosh, I love that word!). Feel free to email me with any questions (pedermom@aol.com).

Oh my gosh, I love this card Karen! The black is perfect!! I may have to lift your idea, but I don't know if I can use up so many of my sparkles. I'm a sparkle hoarder, lol. Again, I love it!!
