3CT - I'll Have a "Blue" Christmas without you


Hi! - I missed last week for the 3CT Challenge but had a bit of time today so I whipped out this little number.  Okay maybe that's stretching the truth a little but I did manage to finish a card for this weeks challenge.

Cards with (Blue, White & Silver) as the color scheme.

I bought a set of (Foam) stamps ages ago (like 2-3 years) and finally used one of them.  I've been meaning to get some paints/brushes and experiment with the stamps but so far that hasn't happened.  So instead I stamped this row of trees with Versa Mark ink and then embossed them with Cobalt Blue Embossing powder.  Next I ran a thin line of glue (Quikie Glue Pen - Everyone should have one of these) and added some sparkly snow with some Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  Then I added silver sprinkles to the tops of the trees.  Aren't they pretty!  I mounted this piece on Brushed Silver card stock.

My next layer is Whisper White embossed with the Snowflake Embossing Folder and I added designer paper by (Paper Pizazz - Christmas Tidings).  I tied it altogether with some White Satin ribbon, silver cording and a silver snowflake charm. 

I love how it turned out and hope you do as well.  Don't forget to check out the other 3CT Design Team members cards on Kerry's blog or their personal blog and leave them some comment, "Lovin!"

Have a wonderful day.
