Christmas Card Club Challenge #3 Texture

Hi Crafters,

This post is a day early, hope you don't mind Rachel, as I have another DT card for tomorrow.

Our challenge this time was chosen by Rachel and knowing her love of mixed media art I am not at all surprised at the choice of theme - Texture.

I don't own many mixed media products so I thought I would just stick to my traditional embossing folders and heat embossing for my texture on this one.

Cuttlebug 'Snowy' Embossing Folder
Kraft card
Go Kreate Tag Die
Our Daily Bread Designs - Christmas Tree Collage Stamp
Memory Box - Pine Trio Outline Die
Craft Concepts 'Budding Vine' Embossing Folder (for the tree fill-ins) 
Cretive Dies Sentiment Dies.
Glittered Embossing Powder
Tumbled Glass Distress Ink
Gingham Ribbon

Challenges I'd like to enter:
That Craft Place - ATG
Creative Fingers - #102 ATG

Please take a look at the other ladies blogs in the CCC group for more inspiration on your Christmas card makes - it's never too early to start!

Happy Saturday!

This is a very striking card Lorraine, the bold greens of the trees really pop against the white embossed background.

Hope you have a good weekend.

Just a quick note that your Pinterest gadget is way too big for your sidebar and it's covering up the comment area in some spots. If you would like some help fixing it, shoot me an email. pamellia1162 (at) gmail (dot) com
