White Embossed Tree Season's Greetings Card - 52 {C}CT Dec Colour Challenge

This week at 52 {C}CT we have a fabulous colour challenge for you - black, white and a metallic of your choice.

I went for silver as my metallic and I've used silver brads and the gorgeous, sparkly SU! silver Glimmer Paper - I LOVE that stuff!  I inked the tree with VersaMark and then heat embossed after sprinkling on white embossing powder.  The sentiment is also white embossed.  After cutting the tree panel to the size I wanted I used a ruler and an SU! silver Dazzle Marker to edge the panel with silver.  I then layered that onto a slightly larger black mat.  I attached the tree panel and the sentiment label to a silver sparkly mat with silver brads and attached the mat to a black A6 size card base.  I punched a sparkly snowflake, attached that to a black circle with a brad, layered onto a larger white CS circle and popped it up.  

I white embossed a sentiment for inside the card and cut it out with an SU! Labels Framelits die and adhered it to a panel of white CS.  To finish off inside I added a trio of small sparkly punched snowflakes.  For the envelope flap I punched black and sparkly silver circles and added more punched small snowflakes.

I hope you will join in with our colour challenge this week, I look forward to seeing what you create!
