Monday Blues

I'm not blue, it's the card and the fabby ribbon kit from Angel Crafts
Before I show you what I've done with it - have you entered my candy yet? you'll find it here


 The tree, ribbon and swirly stamp are all in the January "Touch of Blue" kit
I painted the tree with white acrylic paint, then covered in glamour dust while it was wet. I used Versafine to stamp around the edges of the blue core'dinations cardstock and clear embossed. Then stamped some more with versafine and white embossed - the white embossing powder stuck to some of the already clear embossed parts, but I think it gives a kind of frosty effect.
I ran a length of double sided tape across the card then concertina'ed the ribbon along it, then machine stitched to secure it.
And finally the greeting is Kaisercraft 


here's a close-up to let you see the glamour dust a bit better

Fabby card girl. Love the embossing and gorgeous sparkly tree. Frosting looks good. Was promising myself to do the same but still to get off the mark. Carolxx

I love the way you have carried the swirl shape of the tree branches through into the embossed edges of the cardstock - very striking with the white & blue combination.
