No Stamps Here!

I can't remember when I last created a card without any stamps!!! How is it possible to do that? LOLOL. Well, maybe it was last Fall. That's when I last used this embossed image. I had this one left over from last year and said it was time for it to shine!

1. The tree image is embossed on Neenah Classic Crest Natural cardstock and painted with the Twinkling H2O's listed below. Then highlights were added with a Sakura Quickie Glue Pen. Mark Richards 2 and 3mm Pearls were added with the help of Glossy Accents. The Gold Flower on the top is from Flourishes Beautiful Brads. I exchanged the brad for the pearl with a glue dot.

2. The Snowflakes are embossed on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and highlighted here and there with a Sakura Quickie Glue Pen and DecoArt Glamour Dust. The tree was mounted on top with 3D Pop Dots.

3. The ribbon frame was done using the instructions I found HERE. The bow was done with the Bow-Easy and the extra tails were created by adding an extra piece of ribbon through the back of the bow while it was still on the 'Easy'.

Supplies:
Image: Cuttlebug Lace Tree and Snowflakes embossing folders

Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White and Natural Super Smooth cardstock, Bazzill Bank Roll
Inks: Twinkling H2O's Solar Gold, Pink Grapefruit, Lemon Drop, Kiwi

Accessories: Sakura Quickie Glue Pen, DecoArt Glamour Dust Glitter, Glossy Accents, Mark Richards 2mm and 5mm pearls, Flourishes Beautiful Brads , May Arts Ribbon, Bow-Easy

A quick card. Thanks for stopping by to look and share!
