Day 2 - good so far! :-)

Here is another card we made in club this last time.
This is so much cooler in real life.

It is embossed with the Big Shot, an Embossing Folder,
and some chipboard.


I wrote the how tos up for a shoebox swap so I have them to share.  I don't usually do this.
The tree is just a triangle cut from a 3” x 4” piece of chipboard.

one 5.5" x 8.5" Real red cardstock
one 4" x 5.25" Green Galore
one 4.25" x 5.5" Whisper White - trim later

1. Emboss the cardstock by layering -
the multipurpose platform
You may have to adjust the multipurpose platform with shims, depending on the thickness of your chipboard. I used two 5" x 5" pieces of our white backing from our DSP packages.
the folder with the cardstock inside
place the cut out template on top of the folder - I attached this with Dotto adhesive.
then the Impression Pad

2. Trim white embossed layer to 3 ¾” x 5”
3. Using a dauber apply Champagne Shimmer Paint to tree.
I use an old Button embellishment container to keep my dauber in.   Daub off excess paint in lid of container.
4. Punch hole/Insert Red Fire Brad or Clear Ice Brad
5. Tie Striped Grosgrain Ribbon around white layer.
6. Layer on Glorious Green
7. Stamp verse inside Real Red base.
We stamped Season's Greetings from Many Merry Messages.
8. Layer green/white on Real Red Red
