Embossed Christmas Tree

This is a photo I found, but it reminds me of our Mistoffelees in the snow.  With his thick wooly fur, he is completely oblivious to the snowflakes adorning his black fluffy coat.
Hi, Friends........

I'm here with a Christmas card to put in my stash for next holiday season. This is one that I had been wanting to make for quite some time. I had the embossed tree, the embossed red piece, and the text papers all together in a bag to put together, and finally snagged the opportunity. Yay! I love how it turned out!!

Supplies used include:
Darice - Christmas Tree embossing folder
Darice - Diagonal Stripe Background embossing folder
Text paper from Echo Park
Sparkle white embossing powder
Versamark ink
Distress Ink in Walnut Stain (inked edges of panels and gently sponged over tree to tone down the bright white)
Black rhinestones from my crafty friend Karen Ladd <3

I kept it sentiment-free to follow the optional twist over at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Card Challenge. Previously, I hadn't paid too much attention to Christmas card challenges during the off-season. This year, however, I am enjoying making holiday cards that I didn't get a chance to finish during the hectic time before Christmas.

Hope you enjoyed this fun and simple card! Thank you for stopping by!!
