Woodware UK: Monochromatic Does Not Mean Boring

The Woodware team have been challenged this week to create with a monochromatic Christmas theme by the Craftrange retail store in the UK. You can see what our team has been inspired to do with this challenge on the Woodware blog.

I love the look of white on white, especially for the holidays, so that's the direction that I went with for this challenge, adding a bit of silver as well. I paste-embossed in white the Dreamweaver Line of Christmas Trees stencil. While the paste was wet, I waterfalled Stampendous Crystal Glitter and Microfine Silver Glitter over each tree, one by one, pressing slightly to ensure great glitter coverage. When almost dry (10-15 minutes) I pressed a few Mark Richards Crystals and Pearls into the top of the trees. The panel was matted with silver mirror cardstock and mounted onto the white card. A scrap of mirror card was machine embossed with Dreamweaver's new small Merry Winter, but could easily be substituted for any of the small holiday sentiments.

This card was so simple to create, and would be fabulous done in multiples. As a matter of fact, I'm kind of thinking that this will most likely be the design I send out to friends and family this year. What do you think?

Wonderful color combination and layering. I like how you were able to color the trees differ colors and embellish them.
