Hero Arts Holiday Trees Card

Yay!! I finally had time to make a card. I have so many new Hero Arts Christmas stamps that I've been dying to use so tonight I used some of my new stamps for this card. I wanted to be more like my friend Barb and have an interesting embossed background so I used clear embossing powder on the background, then sponged over it with Iced Spruce and Broken China Distress Inks and sprayed it with Vanilla Smooch Spritz Spray. You can't really tell, but the background is very shiny from the Smooch Spritz. Then I stamped the trees in Iced Spruce and Broken China, cut them out, and adhered with foam tape. No challenges for this one - just fun for me. Thanks for taking a look!!
