Joy to the World card...

While perusing the blogging world this morning, I came across a beautiful card by Tosh ? on a blog called Stamp Talk with Tosh. She did hers in a pink theme. So, me being inspired, I had to give it a go... this is my version of her card. TFL

What I used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Christmas Memories stamp set
Christmas Scripts stamp set
Perfect Day bulk B&T
Colonial White and Juniper C/S
Juniper ink
Clear embossing powder (emboss-resist technique)
White Daisy grosgrain (sponge-inked with Juniper)
Martha Stewart snowflake punch
Slot punch (SU)
Glue pen
Prisma Glitter
Pop-dots (other)
Make-up sponges (other)

Wow. As I was looking at your card. The first word that came to my head was "stunning", and then as I went to post my comment, I saw that Tracy had thought the same thing. Love it.

This is such a simple but beautiful card! There's another stamp set I'm going to have to get...after I already figured out which stamp set I will be using. Thanks for feeding my addiction! ;)

I am a fellow CTMH'er and I just found your blog. I love your work and immediately added you to my favorites. Thanks for the inspiration.

I'm also a CTMH'er and I love your work. I'm subsribed to your blog. When you get a chance will you explain the technique for giving the tree the dimension? You mentioned the name of it, but I had never heard of it.

And I never thought of dying white organdy ribbon! Thanks for that idea.

Julie, what I did for the tree was Clear embossed the tree image first, then took a make-up sponge and dabbed it into the Juniper ink. I then just dabbed and rubbed the ink over the embossed image of the tree. So everywhere the embossed image is will show white because it 'resists' the ink.
