Partytime Tuesday and Tuesday Throwdown Challenges

The challenge at Partytime Tuesday is anything goes and at Tuesday Throwdown it is to make a masculine holiday card. I was playing with some Tim Holtz stamps and diecuts and came up with this card. With the new No More Shims thick mat you can emboss with cut out diecuts and also with stencils easily. I started with some brown Core'dinations paper that has green on the other side and embossed a diecut tree and sanded so the lighter green stands out. The trio of trees and the reindeer are also from Tim Holtz. The Believe! is a stencil that I embossed onto gold metal paper, and I added the punched star as the finishing touch.
