Oh, Christmas Tree

 Merry Christmas Everyone! 

If you want to get messy today and spread glitter everywhere, this is the technique for you. It is a faux suede technique with a twist. It is called Iced Leather. Of course, I am speaking of only the background. What do you think?

First, I made the background, Iced Leather. I took a sanding block and roughed up the Pool Party panel. This gave the panel the look of suede.

I then swiped the sueded panel with VersaMark. I tried to create some rough or hard edges along with some soft edges.

I then sprinkled some Heat and Stick Powder. I applied heat with my heat tool and quickly added the glitter. I tapped off the access and set it aside to cool.

I stamped and die cut three trees and a sentiment.

I arranged them all on the card and attached them using dimensionals.

Lastly, I adhered the basic white panel to the inside of the card.
