Pretty as a Row of Trees

Chocolate and aqua a lovely combination.
The aqua base card was stamped using the Rollergraph snowflake stamp inked with versamark then heat set after applying bridal embossing powder by Ranger, I'm not sure you can see all of the subtle twinkles that this powder gives but it is simple gorgeous in the flesh.
I used the same powder to heat emboss the Lovely as a Tree stamp by Stampin Up only this time using it on the chocolate coloured card then dividing it into 4 pieces and matting and layering it.
Lastly I punched 4 holes into the topper aqua card and threaded and tied a chocolate ribbon through the card. finished with a little Christmas tree charm and a pretty snowflake.

Attention to detail...

The snowflake was made using 2 snowflake punches then a little drop of clear drying glue on each and dipped into Crushed glass glitter to give the sparkle, a brad was added through the centre.

Yet another stunning card from your talented hands Jak, i just adore this card and yes i can see twinkles when i zoom in on your pictures. Love the idea of dividing the image in 4.

Gorgeous card Jak. I love the colour combination, and the way you have separated the image, I keep meaning to try that (but need to pinch/borrow my daughters tree stamp!)

I came across the box containing my rollergraph rollers, and they are out to use on a card in next couple of days.
