Muse: Christmas Visions Challenge!

Happy Wednesday!  It is the 3rd Wednesday of the month and time for my  MUSE:  Christmas Vision Card Club

I hope my card inspires you to create a Christmas creation of your own.  I can't wait to see what you create.  Make sure you link up your creations HERE!

For my card I  started with traditional red and white.  I am using Verve's Pinecone Christmas stamp set.  I stamped the sentiment in versamark onto the red and embossed with white embossing powder.  To create some added dimension, I swiped the versamark pad across the red  card stock to create the look of subtle texture.  This step must be done after the embossing or the white embossing powder will stick everywhere.  Next, I stamped the branch and leaves onto the white oval die cut.  Then, I die cut the pine cones from Verve's Cut  Above Poinsettia Pinecone die set, stamped with coordinating pinecone images, and used some foam tape to pop them up for added depth and dimension.  I finished my card with a few of Verve's Holiday Sequin Mix. 

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
