Flowering Christmas Tree -- CC384

Hello!  I hope all is well with you and yours. It’s been a busy week this week as well as last week but I finally had a little time today to play in my studio. Today I made a Christmas card for the Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge. I used a die cut for the main focal point but I did manage to incorporate a bit of stamping. :-) The flowers were layered and I added a bit of sparkle with gems and glitter. The sentiment as well as the "container" for the tree were heat embossed. I also experimented with some Copic markers in shading parts of the Christmas tree--something else I will having fun playing with more in upcoming projects.  Thanks for visiting!

Stay inspired,

  1. Such an original card. I really like it!

  2. Wow what a smashing Christmas card. So nice to see a tree that's not the same old same old! But looks like a ton of work so better be going to someone really special.
