Sizzix Christmas Tree decorated with Alcohol Inks

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to Day 3.  Today we are showing you the Sizzix Emboss and Die Cut - Christmas Tree #2.  If you haven't made your Christmas cards yet this would be great to make a bunch of cards in a hurry.  You could keep things clean and simple or more detailed depending on your style.  

For this card I have used Foil Sheets by Tim Holtz and stuck it to some white card then cut and embossed it.  Then I have applied alcohol inks and then when the alcohol inks had dried I applied black archival ink over the top.  

The doily was cut out of bazzill card using the Couture Creations Tranquil Lace Doily Die and then inked with Pine Needles Distress Ink.  The sentiment is from the Holiday Says Clear Stamp Set by Hero Arts.  I gave the card a bit more definition by drawing a border with a white gel pen.  This is a great tip for adding a little something extra to your cards that is simple to do.

We have got some other examples of using the foil sheets and also a relatively new product Mirror Sheets (this is exactly like a mirror but card stock - very cool!) So check out the facebook page later in the day.

If you want to see the picture in a larger size just click on it.

Thanks for stopping and be sure to come back tommorrow for another Christmas idea.
