I'm so excited to be able to participate today! I'll keep this short since I'm sure you have many more blogs to see. I used Stampin' Up! Lovely as a Tree for the tree and embossed it with Rubber Marbles' Dusk. I like this embossing powder because it's a mix of blues and a bit of purples. I took a close up shot, too, so you could see the colors better.
I cut a rectangle out of a piece of copy paper and taped it down over the front; then used Night of Navy and Pacific Point inks from Stampin' Up! with a cotton ball to make the window of color. The sentiment is from Fiskars Season's Greetings set. The paper is a pearlized ivory and it's all mounted on purple Bazzill.
Here's the close up:
I also embossed one in black:
Thanks for taking a look. Both of these cards will be going to Operation Write Home and are based on Sketch 16 on the Stars & Stripes blog. I hope you have a chance to make some cards today!
