Christmas Tree

Hi everyone, hope you've all had a good weekend. I've been making Christmas cards using a cuttlebug embossing folder which are nice and quick when making a few together and I now have nine of them made up. I've varied the mat layer on them, either red, silver or gold and also the colour of stickles and liquid pearls. This card is on a gold layer and highlighted with gold stickles and an ivory bow. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris

Gorgeous card! Love it! I have this embossing folder and used it to make some of my christmas cards, which I must upload thinking about it! I only embossed half of the tree and it gives a really good effect! Jillix

Ahhh... ooohhhh .... awwwww!! :)

Thank you, you Queen of great ideas and elegant cards!

I have 3 or 4 'copies' of this Christmas tree as a gift from a friend and I was reluctant to use them as they seemed too "invisible" - silly me!

Now I know what to do with those... Thanks again!

Hugs,
Mada

Hi Chris
This is such a lovely simple card I love it! I saw one similar to this on Saturday in a craft shop in Bury St Edmunds and I thought I would have to buy one and here it is on your blog! I hope you are well Chris. I've had one of my friend's over for the weekend so I have been out and about and had a lovely time. My friend is a crafter too so we had a lovely time!
Hugs Lynsey :)
