Celtic Knot Christmas Tree

Here's another card for the Happy Little Stampers Christmas Card Challenge with the theme of "tree".   It will go up as one of the mid-month reminders.

I kept it very CAS as I'm also entering it in this week's SCS CAS challenge - "Christmas in July".  And because both image and sentiment are stamped, it's also going in the Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge - "Stamping".

It was a great opportunity to use some of my coloured embossing powders - they tend to languish on the shelf as there are so many new products to use these days!  As much as I love all those new products, it really is nice to go back to my roots in the cardmaking craft world - I started out stamping and heat embossing as I loved that effect!

Stamps:  Wordsworth Celtic Knot Christmas Tree, Tim Holtz sentiment
Ink:  ColorBox Gold and Evergreen
Paper:  cream and gold shimmer cs
Accessories:  Stampendous Gold Detail and Green Tinsel embossing powders, L'il Inkers Stitched Square die
