Simon Says Triangles

The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge this week is "triangles." I suppose these Christmas trees can be considered triangles, so I made 3 cards in different colors. The background & tree in the foreground are both Hero Arts stamps. I heat embossed them with gold ep on red cardstock, adding a SU! embossed sentiment and a metallic gold star done with a SU! mini punch.


Here's the navy, white, & silver version, with a silver star on top of the tree, although the picture shows it as gold. I heat-embossed the background stamp with white ep to look like snow, and added embossing with a swiss dots ef to continue with the snowy look. The single tree in the front was heat-embossed with silver ep.


Here's the Island Indigo, Pool Party, & silver version, using a different Hero Arts tree background stamp, along with a CB embossed background. That completes 3 more cards I can add to my Christmas stash :)

Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a fantastic weekend!

Wile they all are gorgeous, i am thinking that my fave is the last...something about the colors and the contrast between the trees. Super duper!
