I wanted to have a go at a few modern styled Christmas cards this year, here is one of them. This one is now winging it's way over to my Uncle in Australia so hope the glitter doesn't all fall off on the way :o)

I used a DL sized card blank but trimmed it down a little so it had a slimmer appearance. For the trees I cut varied sized triangles from coloured card stock. For the Black and White trees I embossed them with a dotty embossing folder then coloured over the raised dots with a glue pen and covered with glamour dust just to give them a little bling! The sentiment is embossed using white powder, the lovely stamp I used is from Stamping All Day, link to the right if you'd like to take a look. I really love the style of this stamp!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
ABC Challenge - E for Embossing
Moving Along with the Times - Last Minute Christmas
Crafty Creations - Card with a Sentiment
Sarah Hurley - Christmas
Penny's - Merry Christmas
