Serene Silhouettes - The Friday Mashup 161

The challenge this week with The Friday Mashup here is to create a project with trees, or create a project with heat or dry embossing, or mash it up and create a project with Embossing and Trees. I decided to make a card that not only had a tree on it, but also had both heat and dry embossing.








The treee was embossed with a mixture of Gold and Wild Wasabi embossing powders.  You can see the sheen of the gold on the image on the bottom.  The Very Vanilla layer is embossed with the Stylish Stripesf embossing folder.

Stamps: Serene Silhouettes, Something to Say
Inks: Versa Mark
Papers: Gumball Green, Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Fresh Prints DS Paper Stack
Accessories: Stylish Stripes folder, 3/8" Summer Starfruit stitched satin ribbon, Deco Labels framelits, 1 3/4 by 7/8" oval punch, Gold embossing powder, Wild Wasabi embossing powder, dimensionals, rhinestones.

I chose to use the Summer Starfruit ribbon, but considered using either the Gumball Green, or Midnight Muse.  The Gumball Green made the card look too "green"; the midnight muse stood out too much, so in the end I used the Summer Starfruit.  What do you think?  Was that the right choice?

Great card Maria! I love how you used Dry and Heat embossing, and added some gold embossing to your tree. I think the Starfruit works perfectly on your card!

Thank you for playing along with us at The Friday Mashup!

Great idea to combine the gold and green embossing powder, it gives the image a great look! I think the Summer Starfruit was the best choice, it reminds me of the sun!
