Believe in the Magic of Christmas


The snow has been falling all morning so I decided to create another Christmas card. For the background I used a new background die from Poppy Stamps called "Diamond Background".  I love the diamond shapes on this die cut.  Behind the die cut I attached an embossed background using the Sizzix "Dots" embossing folder.  It looks like falling snow.   The tree is from Memory Box.  When you die cut this tree, and if you run it back through with the embossing pad, it embosses snow on the bottom of each branch.  Since I used green card stock for the tree, before I removed it from the die, I pressed the VersaMark "Dazzle" watermark stamp pad down over the openings so I could add white embossing powder for the snow.  After adding the ink, remove the die and pour on the embossing powder, then heat set.  I love how realistic this tree looks.  

In the upper left corner I added a poinsettia created with the Susan's Garden "Poinsettia" dies.  Under the poinsettia are two Poppy Stamps die cut "Berry Sprigs".  To color the berries on this sprig, I added Seedless Preserves Distress Glitter.    The sentiment is from the Heartfelt Creations "Holly Berry PreCut Set" (HCPC3551). 

 Below is a link to the products I used from Ellen Hutson, LLC:
