Blue Christmas AAA29

I saw this challenge when it first came out at AAA Cards at the start of December and wanted to do something for it, yet here we are with only a day to go.... just sneaking in before the deadline.

I've recently become very taken with using Night of Navy, so much so that I've had to buy a new packet. This card is predominantly White and Navy with some silver embossing on the Christmas tree decoration and touches of silver in the rhinestones.

And a peek inside...

I liked the idea of wandering through a forest and coming upon a Christmas tree, so this card is a response to that. The oval cut-out gives a bit of a window effect and gives a sense of depth to the card. The forest floor is sponged then stamped over with an un-named grass stamp found at the Church Fair. The tree is decorated with silver embossed tinsel and rhinestones but the embossing hasn't photographed so well.

Card: Night of Navy, Whisper White
Ink: Night of Navy, Versamark
Stamps: Festival of Trees, Endless Wishes, un-named grass stamp
Other: Sponge, Dimensionals, unidentified blue baker's twine, Kaisercraft rhinestones, Tree punch, silver embossing powder, Provocraft Swiss Dots embossing folder, Night of Navy stamp and write marker to colour all cut edges, Oval framelits.
