FFC36 - Joyeux Noel


Time for the next Festive Friday challenge! Here's the inspiration:


I combined a number of the elements in the photo - the silver frame (I created it with embossing powder so that it would match the rest of the card), the branch with silver ornaments (I used a Penny Black stamp) and the 'Noel' on the table. I popped up the sentiment to mimic the mantle shelf. 

ETA - the 'frame' is a separate layer of white cardstock. I smooshed my Versamark ink around the edges and then embossed it (twice) with silver ep. I adhered the white 'tree' panel on top, so the rough edges of the frame are hidden.

This is another one of those really amazing photos - it appears simple, but the more you look at it, the more inspiration comes to you! Meredith is really talented at finding these photos! I can't wait to see where this one takes you! The deadline is Wednesday July 30.

How did you create the border? Did you mask or was there a stamp involved? Very pretty card. :)
