Neutral Noel

I have another neutral card using my 'Pumice Stone' Distress Ink today...I hadn't realised how pretty 'beige' could be until I used this ink on this card last week. I stamped the tree stamp (from the 'North Country' set by Prima) in Versamark, then eat embossed it in white, before blending the 'Pumice Stone' ink over the top. I matted it on to white, and then kraft card, and added a sentiment (from the 'Bubble Tree' set by Woodware) stamped in Memento 'Rich Cocoa' ink.


Challenges for this card:
  • Crazy Challenge - No Designer Papers
  • Jingle Belles - Neutral Noel (I was inspired by the colour scheme, and gorgeous tree & snowflake cushions in the photo)
  • Lollipop - White with a Splash of Colour
I'll be back with another Christmas card tomorrow for our current ABC Christmas Challenge.
