Christmas Tree Joy

Hi there and welcome back. Today I have a card for the Holly and the Ivy Challenge, where it is always anything goes. An easy way for you to keep adding to your Christmas card stash twice a month throughout the year. I haven't changed my header this month as blogger has changed something with the header option in layout! So you are stuck with a bee for a bit longer!! This happened before, so I am hoping that it will revert back to being able to change the header image. Anyway, on to my card!

Another of the die cuts that I recently purchased from Lifescraft. It's a Christmas tree edger, but I decided to use it a little differently. I ran the die cut through my machine with white cardstock.

Then I drew around the outline of the tree and flipped the die to pencil in both sides on a darker piece of green than the card base that I was going to use.

This was then fussy cut along the inside of the pencil marks and was taped down to the inside of the tree. The tree was then taped down to the front of the card base. The sentiment and little package were from the following stamp set.

The sentiment and gift were stamped with Versafine Clair Shady Lane Ink and were then heat embossed with Clear Detail powder to give them a little sparkle.

I wrapped a green organdy ribbon around the left side of the card to finish it off!

Hope this has inspired you to join in with us at the Holly and the Ivy Challenge

I'll be back soon!
