Blue Christmas

I am still working on Christmas cards. I have been having so much fun with the Gina Marie Designs die I bought from Kat Scrappiness and this is just one of many ways I have used this die.


This time I dressed the card up a bit more by adding a snow flake pattern behind it. And, I used a variety of blue card stock shades on it along with ivory card stock. I also added some Wink of Stella to the snowflake die cut background and the background behind the tree design. The last step was to add some gems to the tree and stars.


The dies used for this card are;
Taylored Expressions-Snowflake Cutting Plate
Gina Marie Designs-Cut in Cut Out Christmas Tree

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Dies R Us Challenge #100-Anything Goes
Kat Scrappiness July Card Challenge-Crazy for Backgrounds
Muse: Christmas Visions103  I used the trees and snowflakes as my interpretation.

I hope I am not boring you too much with this tree design but I really am having fun working with it. It makes for such wonderful looking cards I think.

Well, hard to believe it is July 1st already. I wish all of you a great July filled with lots of crafty fun! Thanks for visiting too!

God bless,
Verna
