Collecting the tree

   Another Christmas card completed! I made use of left over scraps of Papermania designer paper for this one. I matted them onto mauve mirri card and where the two papers met I wrapped ribbon round:- 1cm wide oganza ribbon and narrow satin ribbon on top. This was then matted onto white card.
   The stamped image, collecting the tree from Lili of the Valley, was coloured using Promarkers and I added glitter to the upper side of the tree. I then matted this onto mauve mirri card cut out using a Spellbinders classic scalloped circle dieand attached it to the card using thin foam pads.
   I cut varies snow flakes out of centura pearl card using Tattered lace dies. Three of them I covered in pale blue glitter and layered together. After attaching to the bottom right hand corner of the card I glued a pale blue gem stone in the centre. The other snowflakes I covered with purple glitter, layered and attached to the blue designer paper. A purple gem was glued to the centre of this.
    Finally I cut a piece of blue mirri card using a Spellbinders lacy oval die, attached a peel off sentiment to it and fixed it to the card using thicker foam pads.
