WWC189 - Heidi's All About Holidays Challenge
Many cardmakers are already working on their Christmas projects. If that includes you, Heidi brings us the perfect challenge this week.

My card for this challenge features a colour combo I really love: copper and Merry Merlot.
I think the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is just made for the metallic foil papers such as the copper I have used here. The middle opening is cut out with an oval from the Stitched Shapes framelits.

On the Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped the tree from the Timeless Tidings stamp set in Shaded Spruce. The sentiment is from the same set, stamped in Merry Merlot.

This seemed to me to be a perfect opportunity to use the star shape from the Snowflakes & Stars Wire Elements. I threaded a length of thick black Baker's Twine through it.

And that's it! A really simple card, but that yummy embossed copper takes this to another level.

Did you notice the little tree? I was playing around with the tree from the In the Woods Framelits and wanted to try this out. I used a palette knife to "frost" the tree with embossing paste. This one is made with the copper glimmer paper, and I'm picturing in my mind a grouping of trees in each of the glimmer paper colours.

For more fabulous festive fun, go to Watercooler Wednesday. 


  1. Beautiful card Gail. I love the Tin Tile Embossing folder and it's bold design. Reminds me of my grandmother's house and the old ceilings there. Merry Merlot, Shaded Spruce and the Gold foil are so rich together and really epitomize the Christmas season. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks Penny. I'm really liking that colour combo.

  2. Gail..loving the tin tile embossing folder ~ the copper showcases the detail so well. Beautiful card and love the wired star . TFS. :)

    1. Thanks Sheri. I got those embellishments on my pre-order, and this is the first time I've used them. I really like them, too!
