Oh Christmas Tree!

Evening All

I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend.  I have had a lovely weekend playing in my craft room.  The weather here in Warrington UK is atrocious!  It has rained all day and has been very cold.

Today I have an easel card which I have made into a Christmas card.  This is going to one of my many friends!



I have taken an 8 x 8 Pearlescent card and creased along the middle of the front to form the base for the first layer.  The first layer is embossed card from Kanban which I have distressed with my Dew Drops Brilliance ink Lavender.  The topper which is from Kanban has been matted and layered using silver holographic card and lilac pearlescent card.  I have added lilac pearls to the four corners and added a little snowman another Kanban topper to complete the scene.  I have attached lilac ribbon with the greeing Happy Chrismas along the middle and punched some snowflakes using my Martha Stewart punch from the holographic card and layed them on the card.  The greeting is from Kanban.

The base of the card is another embossed card of snowflakes which I have distressed using Dew Drops Brilliance Starlight Silver.  I then sprayed this with Crafter's Companion Spray and Sparkle in Iridescent.  The bar which hold's the card as an Easel is a layer of holographic card and punched out snowflake border again a Martha Stewart punch.  I have added white pearls to each snowflake.


Thank you for Stopping by Today
Hugs
