Rainbow Christmas Tree

As always, my final Christmas card of the year is the one I've made for Steve - this year I've made a rainbow Christmas tree.

I trimmed a piece of white card so it was slightly smaller than the card blank and placed it into my MISTI.  I placed the Christmas tree on the card and lined up the two parts of the sentiment 'To a Very Special' and 'Husband' stamps.  I stamped these several times in dark brown ink to get a good deep colour and then embossed them with clear embossing powder before attaching the panel to the card front.  I stamped the tree trunk onto a snippet of wood effect paper, fussy cut it and attached it to the card.  I then coloured the baubles with red, orange, gold, green, blue and purple Promarkers before adding Glossy Accents to make then shine.

To make this card I used:
     7" x 5" white matt card blank
     Woodware 'Christmas Bubble Tree' and Clearly Besotted 'Happy Birthday All' stamps
     Versafine Vintage Sepia ink
     Glossy Accents
     Snippet of wood effect paper and white matt card

I am entering the following challenges:
     AAA Cards - Christmas
     Christmas Card Throwdown - Pick a Previous Challenge (I chose the November Colour Challenge - Rainbow)
     Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge - December Challenge
     We Love Stamping - CAS
