Holiday Happiness

It's hard to believe it is time to start thinking of making Christmas cards.  Halloween just ended, Thanksgiving is a few weeks away, and then Christmas.  Boy, do we sure pile a lot of holidays into a few short months.  But, luckily I love creating cards and gift items for the holidays and have all of the supplies to do it too.

Today's card is a base of Crumb Cake that was embossed with the Snow Burst embossing folder.  I layered some Always Artichoke seam binding on the one side, and then added my layers of Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White.  I stamped my tree and ornamnets on the tree using Always Artichoke, and Cherry Cobbler ink, and I used some retired Gold ink for the star. 

If you wanted to get a bit fancier, try adding some buttons or cutting out the ornaments and placing them on with dimensionals like the sample in the Idea Book and Catalog.  There are so many cute ways to decorate the tree, all it takes is a little bit of imagination.

The following were used:
