Berries and Trees - Christmas Card

Hello! I hope you enjoyed a long Thanksgiving weekend. My family and I had a very nice time visiting with friends and decorating for Christmas. I've worked up a few different projects I'll share with you this week. Today I'm sharing a card that incorporates embossing, chalking, stamping, alcohol marker coloring, glitter and sequins.
Usually I have a plan when I start but this one just came together one step at a time and began with embossing the white card stock and the next steps coming as I felt like it. The only thing I knew for sure was that it would have green, red, white and pink so that I could enter it in a challenge at CardzTV. Normally working without a plan ends in something hideous but this time it worked out! The end result is a card that is refreshing and makes me think of evergreens in the snow. This is the first time I used this particular embossing folder from Darice. It has a lot of possibilities and next time I want to do one all in white with just one other color. I think it could be really pretty.

As usual, I can't stand making a card without doing something in the interior. To me it isn't finished unless it looks nice inside too. Here I just added another evergreen tree and stamped a sentiment. A list of supplies can be found at the end of my post. Thanks and until next time, happy crafting!
