Embossed Christmas Tree

I have just seen the challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters and have the perfect card ready, so I thought I should waste no time and get a quick post done.

The theme is embossing, wet or dry so here is my card:

This embossing folder was free with a recent edition of Simply Cards and Papercraft. I used a brayer to ink the folder before running it through my machine. I think I did it more than once to get good coverage. Some of the ornaments are on the embossing folder and some are little tiny dies that came with it. I coloured them with a purple sparkle pen.

I enjoyed making this, I hope you like it.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today, I really appreciate it.
