White Christmas?

CC500I had a little time before heading over to school today so I thought I’d check out the color challenge on SCS.  Since today is their 500th challenge (WOW!!) I just HAD to play along.  They have 4 different color combo – one for each season and the fall one caught my eye.

I had the White Christmas set ‘on top of my desk’ for another project I’m working on and then I saw the technique challenge on SCS was to use a pencil eraser…so you put the two together and viola…you have a fall tree!

Here’s the details –

  • Crushed Curry – 3 1/2 x 11 folded, run through the On Pointe Embossing Folded
  • Bermuda Bay star print (Motley Monsters dsp) – 1 x 4 1/4, cut into a banner.
  • Cajun Craze – 1/8 x 4 1/4, add to banner then add to card front.
  • Very Vanilla – 1 5/8 x 4 3/8 us the bottom side of the banner framelit to cut into a point.
  • Stamp single tree using using StazOn Jet Black.  I used the Project Life Journaling pen to extend the ‘ground’ to the end of the flag.
  • Color stem using Baked Brown Sugar and use pencil eraser to add ‘leaves’ in Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, and Bermuda Bay
  • Wrap Baked Brown Sugar Twine around top, add dimensionals to flaf and add to card front.
  • Tie knot in piece of Bermuda Bay 1/8″ taffeta ribbon, add to Gold Basic Button and add button to flag using dimensionals.
  • Stamp greeting using Cajun Craze.

I think this turn out SOOOOO cool and another use for the White Christmas set!
