Challenge me a Christmas Card with Michelle Lupton!

How fantastic!  I am thrilled to be sharing a card today forMichelle Lupton’s Challenge me a Christmas Card and the theme for us was ‘Night Before Christmas” and I took it literally using the new Altenew stamp set which is called ‘Night Before Christmas’, she must have known that I had it lol.

Yet again I had some embossing powder fun today, I’m a little bit obsessed with heat embossing everything at the moment and I thought these two tones worked perfectly together.

This card is kind of a two for one deal, I heat embossed two trees, one in each colour and then I cut them (together) on an angle and ‘re-joined’ the opposite colours on another die cut tree, it was very easy to do. Lostinpaper - Altenew - Night Before Christmas (card) 1

I kept it clean and simple because the tree was to be the focus.Lostinpaper - Altenew - Night Before Christmas (card) 1

and no need to add a sentiment, it was included!

  1. fantastic idea to make the tree in two colors – and so different and pretty together – just ordered that stamp set – can’t wait to start playing with it!

  2. Therese I just don’t know how you had the perfect cardstock to match your embossing folder!! This is an outstanding idea, and your execution couldn’t be more beautifully done! Bravo!!! xx

  3. How beautiful are these two coloured trees….love the colours and colour scheme you chose for these cards…so eye catching..they will definitely stand out when displayed by the recipient..

  4. Very cool! Love this idea and in these fabulous and non-traditional colors, too. I can tell that you’ve set a new trend with these two cards – they’re amazing! Keep that heat gun hot, and keep making these awesome cards! : )

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
