Silver Embossed Tree

Good morning!  This week's 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge is a color challenge and we are using the color:  black, white, and metallic of your choice.

I chose to use black, white, and silver.  I used the silver on embossing my tree image.  I stamped the image using versamark ink and then I poured silver embossing powder onto my image and I hit it with the heat gun.  The silver embossing is awesome when you want to create that 'wow' factor without all the work of coloring. 

I kept my card more on the clean & simple side, but I did dry emboss the background using my simply score board and diagonal plate.  For my embellishments I used some silver cording and on the tree image I added a few pearls in the center of the snowflakes.  My sentiment is also heat embossed and I placed it onto my card using dimensionals.

I hope you'll have some time to play along with us this week; this is such a fun color challenge!  Thanks for stopping by!  Make it a great day!
