The theme for the December postcard swap over on UK Stampers is 'The top of the tree'
I chose a star for the top of my tree & wanted it to be the 'star' of my postcard.
I started with a base of blue card & used blue stazon ink to stamp the background - Santa, presents & Christmas writing
I then stamped my star stamp & Happy Christmas & heat embossed them using gold embossing powder to make them 'pop' & become the focus of the postcard.
I kept the subtleness & stamped the wording underneath the star again using blue stazon ink in a triangle to represent the top of the tree.
I tried various attempts at this using more colour & bling but much preferred this version.
It was very difficult to photograph though, so hope that the recipient finds it better in real life :-)
