Forgotten Stamps - Wonderous Gift

The Christmas Tree in this set is just asking to be used in so many ways but time is against me at the moment, so for these cards I just stamped and cut it out. The cardstock used is Always Artichoke, Bravo Burgundy, whisper white. I stamped it in Versamark on Always Artichoke cardstock and added while embossing powder, heated it up and cut it out. I embossed some more Always Artichoke with the script embossing folder and added some white. I used the 1" circle punch half way in to punch out the half a circle so the ribbon on the Bravo Burgundy could sit flat. I stamped the sentiment from the wonderful words stamp set down the side which I have cut away and added some white and bravo burgundy behind it.
I stamped the words in Bravo Burgundy and the snowflakes were stamped in versamark for a watermark effect.
I coloured the tree in with the pastels from Stampin Up this time. Cor! that was relaxing!. (Note: to self Get out Pastels more often).
I stamped another tree and added the dazzling diamonds glitter to the ground and scribbled all over the 3 trees. Love the Diamonds......
I popped up the tree in the middle. Wish I had used more Pastels on the middle tree, will have to try that next time.

For now though, I am off on hols Be back soon,

Thanks for looking,
