Christmas tree ...

.... This has to be one of the quickest cards I've made recently. It started life as part of a 12" x 12" scrapbook page. While at Stampeddler last Saturday I got a few large sheets - not what I usually do, but they are just lovely. Here's my card:

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Compliments of the Season II
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Real Red, Emerald Envy; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Copics; Wink of Stella - Clear; Gold Marker; SU Card - Pool Party

I simply cut out the section of design paper to fit my card. I edged it with a gold marker and attached it to the card. I added some sparkle using a clear Wink of Stella and I also added some actual glitter for the snow on the branches of the tree. On the inside I cut a mat layer of pale aqua card and on the white panel stamped some holly and a greeting. I'm submitting this one to Christmas Card Challenges - CCC#49 - I'm not playing along with the optional colours, just making a much needed Christmas card. I'm also submitting to Winter Wonderland Challenge Blog - WWCB where the team want to see poinsettia or falling snow. I think this might pass - it has snow on the branches.

Oh yes, it more than meets the requirements of our current challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown - 52CCT46-16 where we want to see Old Fashioned Christmas. That's all for now!!

Beautiful card Deborah. Yes, the snow on the branches will fit with our theme - the snow had to fall after all!
