Christmas Bubble Tree

It's time for a new challenge at Christmas Crafts All Year Round and this month we want to see 'Warm/Hot Colours'.  I'm entering the ABC Christmas Challenge 'P for Plain', the Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge 'Anything Christmas Goes' and a new Christmas challenge - the Merry Little Christmas challenge where 'Anything Christmas Goes'.

Card blank: 7" x 5" white matt
Stamp: Woodware 'Christmas Bubble Tree'
Embossing: Stampendous Clear Embossing Powder
Ink: Versafine Imperial Purple
Colouring: Promarkers
Card: Purple pearlescent, white matt
Other: Glossy Accents
Snippet: Orange paper

I trimmed a piece of white card so it was slightly smaller than the card blank.  I used my MISTI to stamp the tree and sentiment and then embossed them with clear embossing powder. I stamped the trunk onto a snippet of orange paper and paper pieced it onto the tree.  The baubles were coloured with Promarkers in yellow, gold, orange, red and purple.  The panel was layered onto purple card before being attached to the card front.  To finish I added Glossy Accents to the baubles.

This Woodware bubble tree makes a fun and modern Christmas card Kath and love the prettily coloured bubbles beautifully glossed too, and the sentiment font goes perfectly. x
