I know, scrumptious!!!!! I thought I would do a second Christmas card, this time using the PTI Christmas Tree die, and now I actually have a series going on because it looks a lot like my first card. I know that many of you don't enjoy seeing Christmas cards in August, but all the other good dies were already used in the gallery. This seems to be a popular challenge!
See, I've used the same patterned paper inside as on my snowflake card. It's by October Afternoon and it's one of my all-time favourite Christmas papers. Here's a closer look at it ...
The "shadowed" tree on my card front, as well as the wreath, have been glittered up to make it look as though they are covered with snow.
After making these two cards, I have decided that my Christmas colour scheme for this year will be cream, pink, red and kraft. Now I just have to find an acceptable solid colour wrapping paper in pink. No easy task.
Thanks for looking at my blog. Make sure you head on over to see all of the amazing cards that have been made for this challenge.
FOR THE RECORD:
I have revised this card, but I feel that it doesn't really fit in the challenge very well anymore. Yes, technically I did die-cut the edge of my card, but I have now added added another tree on top, for a total of three trees!! I felt that my card was missing something, maybe the rule of three was bothering me. Anyway, here is a pic of what it looks like now ...
I removed the sequins (with some difficulty - Glossy Accents really sticks!) and glittered up my first pink tree, using Doodlebug fine white glitter. I like the contrast between the two kinds of glitter that I used. I then layered a plain pink tree on top, positioning it a little more toward the bottom of my card. I like this card a whole lot better now.
