Back to Christmas


Here's a Christmas card I made with mostly all SU! products. I used tranquil tides cardstock to make the tree, cutting it and the treepot with SU! framelit dies. The star was done with a SU! mini punch and the sentiment was heat-embossed with gold with a retired SU! sentiment. The 3 mini stars were negatives from a previous project. The wooden background was done with a SU! hardwood stamp on kraft cardstock and the snippet of early espresso card on the left was embossed with a Tim Holtz Sizzix woodgrain ef. This card was made entirely of snippets found in my stash.

I'm sharing this with the October Rudolph Days Challenge 

Thanks for checking in and have yourself a great day!

No! Nooooo! NOOOOOOOOOOOOO! You can't make me go back. wah!

Great tree card. I always though that was the weirdest looking die but in use it looks really cool--really conifer like.

I love the wood background on this and the tree die is lovely. I like the addition of red stars for a festive look.

Another lovely card, Carol. Your tree die is so cool and I like that tree's cardstock colour. The woodgrain background gives a lovely farmhouse country look.
So nice to hear this is a snippets card. Those are always the most fun to view.
Thanks for taking part in the October Rudolph Days Challenge.

This is so gorgeous. I love the rustic woodsy look of this Christmas card you made. Everything you added works so well with the tree as the focal image.
