Green Christmas!!


Another month and another challenge at the Christmas Kickstart blog, this month the theme is "Green Christmas".  I was hunting through my embossing folders and found this really old one from Cuttlebug so decided to have a play.  I inked the folder in a green pigment ink and ran through the card, then I added some clear shimmer embossing powder to give the background a gorgeous sparkle (very hard to photograph). I then added the red gems and sentiment and layered up onto white card. Finally sticking to a red card base.

Green is not a go to colour for me but this turned out prettier than I thought!!

Went for a lockdown walk in the local park and found this gorgeous display of crocuses, looks like spring is on the way at last!!

Gorgeous card, Sally! The green inking/embossing looks amazing. I tried something similar this morning and well, let's just say it didn't come out looking this good! Thanks for playing at Christmas Kickstart, Jo x
