UC - Christmas ...

.... Good morning!!!  It's time for our new challenge at Uniko.  Our theme this month is CHRISTMAS with the optional twist of a CAS creation.  I don't want to scare you, but there are only 34 days to Christmas!!!  There's still time to create some handmade cards.  Here's my card:

Stamps: Uniko - Rustic Christmas, Simply Said Christmas
Inks: Versamark; Memento - London Fog; Stampin' Up! - Not Quite Navy
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Kaisercraft DP - Silver Bells; Silver Mirri Card; Silver Tinsel Embossing Powder; White Embossing Powder; Vellum



I don't think this really counts as clean and simple, although it was very quick and easy to make.  I've used the colours from this week's challenge at City Crafter Challenge Blog - CCCB#288.  In my huge VAST selection of design paper I found this lovely piece in a Kaisercraft pad.  I love the soft grey musical score with the pretty blue and white Christmas ornaments.  I simply stamped the tree in Versamark and heat embossed it with silver tinsel embossing powder - it sparkles!!   I layered the paper on some silver mirri card and adhered it to the card base.  I added the sentiment by stamping it in Versamark on vellum and heat embossing with white powder.  On the inside I cut another piece of silver mirri card for the mat layer and on the white panel added a Christmas greeting, along with some more Christmas trees.
