Oh Christmas Tree
The stamp I used for this Christmas Stepper card is Oh Christmas Tree by Red Gingham Designs available from Little Claire. I stamped it using a black Memento ink pad onto smooth white card. I coloured in the tree image with ProMarkers. For the fine detail I added the Letraset fine nips. I added sparkle with various colours of Stickles and a gold gel pen.
I mounted the image onto panels of gold card, brown and star patterned paper. Across the top corner I added a strip of ribbon. I mounted this onto a Stepper card blank.
I cut panels of gold card, brown and patterned page for the side panels. These were then attached to the card blank. I stamped the circles sentiment with a brown ink pad. The stamp I used is from the Christmas Text sentiments set also by Red Gingham Designs. I mounted this onto a brown and gold circles cut with Lacey Circles Nestabilities. To finish the card I added gold gems and a brown ribbon bow.
I am entering this card into Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #83 The theme is Make it Masculine. So I have used a colour scheme of mostly dark reds and browns.
