Christmas Greetings

Save your scraps because you never know when just a few pieces of paper are all you need to add some fun to your projects.

Today's card starts with Garden Green for the base, layered with Real Red, and topped with Whisper White.   A few strips of Candy Cane Designer Series Paper were cut and placed in random order on the Whisper White.  The tree is from Fun & Fast Notes - one of those great Stamp Sets that has a little bit of everything in it.  I used my Stampin' Pastels and Blender Pen to add some color to the tree, and Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint added sparkle to the star.  Another great punch addition in the Holiday Mini Catalog, the 2 1/2" Circle was used to punch out the tree, and dimensionals were used to pop it up.
