Oops, forgot to show this Christmas card

Ooops, a Christmas card which slipped through the net. This uses the totally fabulous Lovely as a Tree stamp set, as well as the retired set, Seasonal Wishes.

I stamped the large tree in Bordering Blue first on scrap paper to get rid of some of the ink and then stamped on the panel at random, repeatedly to create different shades. There are more on the background of the card base. The main tree is stamped in Night of Navy and then glittered using Dazzling Diamonds.

I couldn’t work out how to get the red gingham ribbon through the wider ribbon so, in the end, I just poked two pieces in. Hope they’re still there!

Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Seasonal Wishes
Cardstock: Brocade Blue, Real Red, Very Vanilla
Ink: Bordering Blue, Night of Navy, Real Red
Accessories: Stampin’ Glitter - Dazzling Diamonds, Brocade Blue Grosgrain Ribbon, Red Gingham Ribbon
