Coral Christmas

Have you seen the latest Die-cutting Essentials Special Edition, it's in the shops now.  I was commissioned to create five projects for the magazine using the free 6-in-1 build-a-tree die set and 8 co-ordinating stamps.

This is one of the projects that I created using the free Christmas Tree die.


I have added lots of glitter to the trees and used foam pads to create some dimension.


I computer generated the sentiment and added a twine bow.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

September Rudolph Days Challenge - Anything Christmas
CHNC Challenge Extra for September - Anything Christmas
Winter Wonderland Challenge - Sketch or Tic Tac Toe (Patterned Paper, Sparkle or Shine, Tree)

Thank you for visiting my blog today, your company is much appreciated - have you entered my giveaway HERE, I have one of the free craft kits that I used to make my cards for one lucky follower to win - it contains 8 stamps, 6 dies, an embossing folder and 32-page paper pack.

the die cut trees look amazing in red with the glitter added for extra sparkle (would never have thought to use red) and the card has lots of texture and dimension, wonderful idea.
