Rustic Christmas

Time for this weeks DT creation for Katzelkraft. This week I am showcasing the Christmas Tree stamp.
I am really enjoying using kraft card at the moment I love the rustic appeal. The background of my card has been embossed with a heart embossing folder and then dry brushed with Gesso.
I have then added a second panel of kraft card applying embossing paste through Tim Holtz Hollybough Layering Stencil and applying Vintage Photo Distress Ink to the edges to add to the rustic feel.
Three dimensional flowers have been added for further interest and I have applied a touch of Gesso to the petals.
I have used Tim Holtz Christmas Shadow Press embossing folder to add 'tis the season' to the bottom of my card applying Vermillion Archival Ink directly to the embossing folder and then running through my die cutting machine.
I have stamped the Christmas Tree image with Vermillion Archival Ink onto kraft card, applied Vintage Photo Distress Ink blended around the image and then added Vermillion Archival Ink to the edges. I love the touches of red combined with the kraft card.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy xx
