Today is my turn!!

I made this beautiful tree using alcohol inks and Yupo paper. I was watching a Jennifer McGuire video and she was using this technique to create some beautiful cards. You can view the video HERE.

After the alcohol inked paper was thoroughly dry, I die cut a tree from the Merry & Bright Sweet Cut set.
I stamped some snowflakes from the Merry Little Christmas stamp set with Versamark ink.
Next I added white embossing powder. I VERY CAREFULLY heat set the snowflakes. The  yupo paper will melt/and or bend if you apply too much heat.

I adhered the tree to a window I created in the card base using oval dies and acetate. I created a frame with white card stock. Then the acetate was glued between the the layers of the frame.  The sentiment is from the Stand Add On: Manger stamp set, which was heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I hope you will join us each day of our Christmas Blog Hop here at PAPER SWEETIES.
