Woodland white scene... and stepped up, too

Eek, it’s Friday again already! Another week of no blogging, but don’t worry, we ARE getting somewhere at home and soon I may get some crafting time again. 

But first let me show you what I made for last week’s SU party. The hostess is a big fan of Christmas projects so the theme was festive. I kept the Make & Take really simple, showcasing the new Woodland embossing folder and teaming it up with the Tree Builder punch, which I know a lot of the ladies already have. I love the pop of Cherry Cobbler against the stark white.

I also showed a stepped-up version of the same card, on which I’d (badly) added some colour to the branches. There are two ways you can do this and, trust me, if you take a bit more time and care over it (as I’m afraid I didn’t), it will look a LOT better than this!
  1. Before embossing, using a marker, carefully colour the relevant raised areas of the embossing folder, to add colour to the indents on the trees.
  2. After embossing, use the fine end of the marker to colour the cardstock in the indented areas on the trees. 
The finishing touch is one of our FABULOUS new wooden snowflakes (LOVE these!) and some nice new gold cord. The addition of just three products turns it into a completely different card.

Oh and the party? It was a lovely, relaxed event and a great opportunity to catch up with everyone. And, on top of this, the workshop total put the hostess into the 16% zone for Stampin’ Rewards so she was a very happy lady!
