Peaceful holiday

I recently purchased Dream Tree from Unity Stamp Company and had to make a card with it as soon as it arrived.

To me, that tree just cries out for embossing, so I embossed it on a pretty light blue shimmer paper I found in the Christmas card section at Target (thank you, all you enablers on SCS!!!). I added dots of stickles for some ice on the tree (this REALLY sparkles in person!). I layered it on white and silver (yet more of the shimmery paper from Target), and finished it off with some silver cord. This is probably the quickest card I have made in a while, so I might have to whip up a few more for my holiday card stash.

Please note that the shimmer paper from Target is VERY thin, and creases easily, so plan on layering it. It also comes in red and gold (which I, of course, had to have).

This is gorgeous! I agree that tree really does work well for embossing!
