Oh Christmas Tree...

Finally, the last project from my Christmas in July event. This is quite a simple card but I think it needs to be simple due to the “busy-ness” of the Scandinavian Season stamp used on the tree. We stamped the image and then cut out the tree shape, losing the trunk. The snowflake was stamped on Whisper White and then cut out using the fabulous Paper Snips. Much glitter was applied.

The star is stamped in White StazOn® and then glittered.

The “snow” is simply a piece of torn Whisper White cardstock on a Night of Navy background.

On the day we used the “Merry Christmas” stamp from Seasonal Wishes which is a lot more swirly and more suited to the card I thought.
