Embossed Tree

This was a card that I designed a while back. The teen girls from our church put them all together. They handed them out with a handmade ornament to the elderly when we went caroling right before Christmas.  The trick to get the center flat is to make a template with the center cut out to go on the outside of the Impressions folder when you run it through the Big Shot.  I have heard of a few that have broke their Big shot by making the template too thick.  I made mine with thin Chipboard.  If it seems too tight do not put it through the machine.  I just kept trying mine until it went through tight but not hard.  We colored the Hollies in with markers.  The tree was stamped in Garden green and then we took the Chocolate Chip marker to do the trunk and a few branches. I am using the extras that I had cut for Thank You cards.  Have a great weekend!
