This is the second card I taught this month, and it is modeled on a 'make and take' card that I made at a Stamp Expo earlier this year, with a panel of acetate in the centre of the front, and the sentiment stamped behind it.
The tree is one from an older set from Unity Stamps that I gold embossed, then mounted over a red layer.
The paper on the top and bottom was randomly stamped with a group of notes from various (clear) stamp sets clustered together on an acrylic block.
I do not know where the sentiment comes from, but I have had it for years and love using it. The embossing looks messy in this picture, but it is not - I think there were marks on the acetate that the camera picked up.
When making this card with the Christmas 'feel' to it, I was thinking of friends who have lost a loved one about this time of year, and may not actually be feeling very festive, so it does double duty, as it were.
