(2020 c106) Alcohol Ink Christmas Trees

Before dry embossing all the cards, the Metalic Poster Board was cut out first with Sizzix thinlits die set called Holiday Words: Script. This first card made with Tim Holtz Sizzix Crackle 3D Texture Fades Embossing Folder 664171 was run through with the shiny side facing up towards the printed side of the embossing folder which gave the pointy surface. As you can see in all the other cards below the Metalic Poster Board from Hobby Lobby (Super CHEAP) was run through facing the opposite way and it resulted in the smooth pillow top texture. The backgrounds were made with a mixture of Ranger Alcohol Inks and  Pinata Alcohol Ink  applied to Brea Reese Waterproof Sheets . Sequins were glued to the tree with Glossy Accents by Ranger .
