Dreamweaver and Woodware UK: Christmas in August...the Tradition Continues, Day Four


Welcome to the annual Dreamweaver and Woodware Christmas in August extravaganza week! Monday through Saturday we will be knocking your Christmas stockings off with fun and inspirational ideas for the upcoming holidays. All that you need to do is hop back and forth across the "pond" on each day, oohing and aaahhhing as you go, and leaving us plenty of holiday love. In return, you'll be entered to randomly win one prize package for a UK commenter, and a second prize package for a US commenter, featuring products distributed in the UK by Woodware...including Dreamweaver and Stampendous!

Prize includes four stencils, one die, and two stamps, selection may vary.


Here's what I've created:

Now, here is a unique take on color for Christmas! Bright pink and black! Using the Ornate Christmas tree, I machine-embossed the design on pieces of pink and silver aluminum, and paste embossed in Glossy Black on the pink cardstock. The stencil was place over the top of the pink aluminum to sand away the color from the embossed surface, and then black StazOn ink was applied to the sanded areas. The various completed panels were cut out and layered on the black card, and depending on how many panels you create, you can have multiple variations. A ribbon bow, a sparkle pompom, and Decorative Pin, and a sentiment completes the card.



Now's the time for you to leave a comment and move on to the next designer for today:

This is one of my fav's in the entire hop - I love the nontraditional colors (I did some black & white cards last year) - the purple is beautiful!
