O Christmas Tree

Inspired by a design team card I saw in Cardmaking and Papercraft, I made this 6" x 6" square stepper card.  I loved the one I saw in the magazine so much that I decided to make my own version of it.  I decided that rather than use the larger label die, which would have meant a large amount of mirror card showing, I used a versamark inkpad and inked the edges focal image then dipped it in melt dust and heat embossed it.  I think the result is quite effective.

Presscut stepper die
