Oh Christmas Tree


Good afternoon! The card I would like to share with you today is for a couple of Challenges:
Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential: Dress Up Those Trees! and the Inspirational Card Sketches: a very fun Sketch!
I have never used Kraft cardstock on a Christmas card, so I thought I would give it a try. I am very happy with the way it turned out! First I stamped my cs with versamark and a snowflake stamp from Inkadinkado. The tree images are from Hero Arts, which I paper pieced the center tree and added some gems to dress them up!! A little sewing and there you have it!
Thank you for stopping by! Tammy
