Christmas Trees

Isn't this a beautiful elegant inspirational picture this week at Paper Lovin' Gals?  I love the way that each week people look at the picture and are inspired in so many different ways - how will you be inspired this week?  Will it be the colours, layout, content or one element of the picture?

For me it was the colours and the three little Christmas trees.  I knew what I wanted to do when I saw this and yes, it involved glimmer paper!  I cut three triangles out of card stock - 2 from Always Artichoke and one from Very Vanilla. I put them all through the Big Shot using the Lattice Embossing Folder, with the Very Vanilla one I first adhered some circles I punched out using my Crop-A-Dial and 3/8" Circle Punch.  Once they had the lattice embossing on them I rubbed the surface of each with Platinum Shimmer Paint.  I also used the Shimmer Paint directly on the rubber to stamp the sentiment.  I was really pleased with the way this card photographed, often it is difficult to pick up the look of the glimmer and shimmer on a card, but this shows it off almost as good as in real life.

Happy Stamping
