We have been working very hard to bring you the Christmas designs showcased this week. I hope that you enjoyed all of our creations and can draw some inspiration for what we have brought to you!
Wishing You Peace, Love and Joy
To create this card I started by simply die cutting a tree shape from this beautiful piece of DP from Studio Calico’s Wonderland Collection. I then sponged the tree to add some dimension, embellished it using various sizes and shades of green rhinestones and voila…a beautiful focal point for my card! I also added a piece of chevron DP from the same collection to the card. But, rather than just adding a rectangular piece of DP to the card, I cut along the chevron pattern on the top and bottom of the DP using my paper snips and I found that this anchored the card!
