Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #97 - Create a Christmas card using aqua, silver and white

It's time for another Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge. This week we are asked to make a card that uses the colours aqua, silver and white. The design team have come up with the most amazing line-up of clear and fresh cards. Stop by the Merry Monday blog and follow the links to the teams personal blogs. You will be inspired!!



Here is my card. It sparkles more IRL.

For the tree, I first die cut the shape, left it in the die to emboss it, then direct inked through the gaps with a little cats eye Versamagic aqua pigment ink pad. I love the effect.





Stamps: Sentiment Kaisercraft  Christmas Carol
Die: Memory Box Frosted Christmas Tree, SSS Holiday Shapes - star
Ink: Versamagic, Zing Silver embossing powder 
Card: Kaisercraft, MME gingham

Enjoy the challenge!!
