Trim The Tree

I went with a Christmas card again and this time used images and dies from My Favorite Things. Therefore I will be entering this in the My Favorite Things-You Could Be a Card Design Superstar Contest-2116.

I tried to create a scene and piled a lot of gifts beneath the tree. For this card I used the LJD-54 Trim the Tree stamp set and also used the FT-788 Trim the Tree Die-Namics die set which matches.

I stamped the ornaments on the tree with clear Versamark ink and then used embossing powder of red and white on them which I heat set. I added extra gem embellishments to the ornaments on the tree and the star. And, The tree was popped up with double stick photo tape. I also popped up the gifts below the tree with photo tape too! The last thing I did was to add a panel of red card stock behind the back of the card so that it had a framed look when closed.

I used pretty much traditional colors of green, gold and red but could not resist adding a few images stamped with wisteria colored ink too. All the inks were from Gina K. Designs;

Well, I now have another Christmas card done but I still have a long ways to go. I thank all of you for stopping in and checking out what my creative juices came up with today and I hope you are having a productive day as well.

God bless,
