Bottle Brush Tree Christmas Card for Two Paper Divas Stamps + News!


It's hard to believe that we're closing in on the end of September, isn't it?  Goodness, holiday season will soon be upon us and I am literally screaming for cooler weather to hurry up and get here. 

Today, I'm sharing a gorgeous Christmas card featuring the new Bottle Brush Trees stamp set from Two Paper Divas Stamps.  Hang tight to the end, as there's a sale to announce as well!



This glitter bombed tree was first inked with Memento London Fog ink.  I chose a gray ink to give  a little better definition to my tree.  I tried both ways, with and without the underlying gray ink and trust me, you'll want to add a little undertone if you choose to heat emboss your tree.



Not only did I heat emboss my tree with pink glitter embossing powder, but I cut an additional piece of white cardstock with my scalloped die, pressed Versamark clear ink all around the edges, then heat embossed those edges to create a glittery backdrop for my tree.    It is absolutely stunning in person.

I also made a glitter embossed backing for my sentiment which is a Tim Holtz chat sticker.  To finish, I stamped my tree stand in TH distress ink and diluted some of the color with my waterbrush, then added a pretty twine bow.  My brown snowflake papers are from The Story of Christmas paper collection from Echo Park Papers and Lori Whitlock. 



I love this card so much, I'm not sure I can bring myself to give it away!  I may just have to use it as a display piece.  We'll see which one of my friends or family can talk me out of it.....
