Holiday Cheer

Hello and welcome!  Today I'm sharing a card that I made for the current CAS Christmas Card Challenge and the Peace on Earth Christmas Challenge. I've made two Christmas cards this month and I'm hoping to join these challenges each month in 2022 so I can avoid that year end scramble to make enough Christmas cards!  

I decided on a very simple design for may card, trying to keep it as CAS as possible.  

To start, I die cut the three sizes of trees (small, medium and large) from Matte Gold cardstock, then die cut the medium once more from white and the small twice more from white.  I used a snowflake embossing folder on a panel of white, and after trimming it down to 4" x 5.25", layered it on two additional panels of scrap white and adhered it to the card base.  

Next the trees were adhered to the card front, those extra layers of trees giving a nice bit of dimension.  The sentiment was silver heat embossed, then was trimmed down by hand, then added with foam tape under the left side and a bit of tape runner on the right.  Super simple, not even any sequins or baubles!

Thanks so much for visiting, I appreciate it!  

Take care!


Stamps:  Sending Holiday Cheer (Ellen Hutson)
Paper:  Neenah Solar White, Matte Gold (Simon Says Stamp)

Beautiful card! Love the way you layered the trees to give dimension, and then added it to the snowflake embossed background. Beautiful use of gold and silver! Thanks so much for joining us at the Peace on Earth challenge and at the CAS Christmas challenge.
