When I say Blue Christmas you probably think of the famous Christmas song by Elvis Presley.  Today’s “blue Christmas” includes a trio of trees – blue trees!

Tones of blue Christmas trees are clustered together with shimmery branches and a blanket of snow. The greeting is poised on a strip of vellum creating the perfect opaque touch. Stampin' Up!'s Season Like Christmas.

I used both Marina Mist and Island Indigo with this two-step stamp.  Blue Christmas trees call for shimmery white snow so I added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the branches and the tree bases.

Although I could have stamped the greeting on the white layer, I chose to add a strip of vellum (1/2″ x 5 1/2″).  I stamped the greeting in Marina Mist and very quickly sprinkled Clear Embossing Powder over the top and heat set it.  The classic ink pads will remain damp for a few seconds allowing you to add the embossing powder.

I’ve got a quick tip video on this technique. CLICK HERE to view it.

Although the card didn’t “need” the layer of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper it sure adds extra sparkle – and I couldn’t help myself. ((smile)) You know I love sparkle!

Tomorrow’s Throwback Thursday will provide a quick tip on heat embossing on vellum so be sure to come back and watch.
