Merry Christmas Tree

Happy Holidays one and all! Mindy with you today sharing a card for the upcoming holidays.

I started with a piece of white card stock cut to an A2 size 5.5" X 8.50".  I scored it at 4.25" inches, and placed the new Grand Merry Christmas Script die, from Memory Box, with the card line on the score line. I then ran the white card stock with the die through my Cuttlebug machine, cutting out the phrase. Then the card is folded shut. I then cut a red stock liner and used 1/4" Scor-Tape to tape it inside the card. 

Then using branches of fir and pine from the Foliage die set by Spellbinders, I created a tree shape down the right hand side of the card, alternating fir branches with some pine branches, and even a pine cone or two. This die set has more dies than those pictured on the web site, but it is a very popular set with many great leaves and branches.

I chalked and inked some of the branches and the pine cones, to give them more depth and dimension before gluing them to the card base. I also used the Paper Blossom Tool Kit to emboss and shape the branches and sprigs. 

To complete the card, I cut the Large Bow die from Impression Obsession, and glued it to the top of the tree. Snow or sprinkles could then be added to your card if you wish.
