Merry Monday Embossing

The current challenge at Merry Monday is 'Embossing' so I've used my Lace Tree embossing folder to make this quick and simple card.  I'm also entering the Winter Wonderland challenge which is 'Oh Christmas Tree'.

Card blank: 7" x 5" red hammer
Embossing: Cuttlebug 'Lace Tree'
Card: Silver mirri and white matt
Other: Red heart brad, Wink of Stella

I embossed the lace tree on white card and trimmed it to size.  I attached the heart brad to the centre of the trunk before layering the image onto silver mirri card and attaching it to the card blank.   I coloured the whole tree with a Wink of Stella to add some sparkle.

Stunning! I have this lovely embossing folder, but haven't been happy with the cards I've made with it. I think I might have to CASE this one. xx
