Tic Tac ... Tree for The Paper Players

Hi there and welcome back!  Today I decided to participate in the current challenge at The Paper Players, where Jaydee has provided us with a fun Tic Tac Toe challenge.  As it ended up, my card matches up with both a diagonal and vertical row

I dug through my retired Christmas stamp sets, my mind fixed on using the big, beautiful tree from Christmas Lodge. First, the tree image was stamped in Versamark and Garden Green ink on Very Vanilla card stock, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  

Although the Kraft card stock and dsp suggest a more rustic card, I really like dressing it up with Glimmer paper.  In this case, a strip along side the main image, a star atop the tree and little red ornaments adorning the boughs.  The beautiful sentiment from the same stamp set was first inked with Encore Gold, then heat embossed with Gold embossing powder.

That's it for this evening.  I hope you have a great week ahead.  Be sure to use the link above to check out all the great inspiration and join in the challenge.  Thanks so much for visiting and I'd love to hear from you if you have a moment to leave a comment!

Stef, this is so lovely - "glorious" was the first word that came to my mind. I just love the touches of glimmer and glitter.
