Golden Christmas Trees Cards (Fairy Tale Challenge #156)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today a new challenge started at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog.

Our theme for this fortnight is #156, Gold und Silber / Gold and Silver . You can use only one or both colors, combine them with other colors... We just want to see some gold and/or silver on your creations. :o)

This time our lucky winner will win this lovely Snowflakes clear stamp set. So cute... :o)

And here is what I came up with: Golden Christmas Trees Cards. :o)

Inspiration for these cards came from Pinterest. There are so many gorgeous triangle Christmas tree cards all over the web. :o)

Couple of years ago, I bought Marbling colors at sale. I've never marbled before and I wanted to try something new. I tried them on plastic ornament balls, but it was so ugly, I gave up from those colors. I put them in my medium box and waited for the moment I'll give them one more chance. This challenge was perfect to pull those colors on my crafting table and try them one more time, because only gold color I have is Marbling color. :o)

For trees I used Canson XL Mixed Media Paper. Great textured paper, which is smooth on a reverse side.

I marbled a paper panel on the reverse side. After drying, I cut two acute isosceles triangles from marbled paper and two more from uncolored paper.

With my trees done, I was ready for the next stage of making these cards.

I stamped a sentiment from Jane's Doodles 'Mr. & Mrs. Claus' stamp set on white cardstock paper panels and glued them on white top folded card bases. I arranged trees and glued them on cards. To add some dimension to my CAS (clean and simple) cards, I added some foam on upper trees.

Here are photos of each card...

I had so much fun marbling paper, I marbled bunch of them in various colors. I'll be using those in my future projects, I think. :o)

Dimensions of both cards: 101 mm x 140 m(4" x 5 1/2")
