CCMC432 Twinkle Tree

It’s time for another challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary and it’s a beautiful color combination!



Copper is really BIG right now in decorating.  I knew I could go with a fall type card, but decided to go with Christmas for a little change!  Both the greeting and the swirls on the tree are embossed with copper, along with the star on top.  It goes along perfectly with the Copper Embossed Designer Paper in Petals & Paisleys DSP package!



Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Mint Macaron, folded in half.
  • A 1-1/2 x 4 strip of Petals & Paisleys DSP was added to the left side of a 4 x 5-1/4 piece of Whisper White.
  • On the right side, the tree from Twinkle Tree was stamped with Night of Navy, then the small bokeh circles for that stamp set stamped inside the tree with Mint Macaron Ink.  The swirls and dots image was stamped with Versamark over top and embossed with Copper Embossing Powder.
  • An AquaPainter and Mint Macaron Ink added grounding under the tree.
  • The star from the same set was stamped with Versamark on Mint Macaron cardstock, them embossed with Copper Embossing powder and cut out.
  • The Mint Macaron Ribbon was wrapped to the back of the Whisper White and hides the seam.
  • Making Spirits Bright from Tin of Tags was stamped with Versamark on Mint Macaron and embossed with Copper Embossing Powder, then punched with the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

OK…make sure to check out what the rest of the Challenge Team has done over on Create with Connie and Mary with this fun color combination!

Copper is so popular with jewelry right now too, except it’s called rose gold. I love that we are right on trend! Your Christmas tree is whimsical with all the swirls and design, yet the colors and specialty paper lend such an elegance. It takes a skillful hand to combine those two feelings onto one card. Wonderfully done, Connie!
