Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge #268 - Evergreen

There is a great sketch over at Stamping 411 this week!

I participated in a Holiday Catalogue card swap and was inspired by one of the cards I received.

I am a little giddy about the way this card turned out!  It doesn't show very well in the photo but the tree is covered with Dazzling Diamonds and is super sparkly...and I love the little star cut out from Silver Glimmer Paper.   Now those of you who have used the Labels Framelits know that each layer leaves about a 1/4" border, but for this card I didn't want that much of a border.  What did I do, you may ask?  I took the framelit that I cut out the tree with and cut around the outside with an xacto knife. It was a bit of extra time and effort but I love the result.

Stamps:  Evergreen and Open Sleigh
Inks:  Cherry Cobbler and Gumball Green
Papers:  Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green and Very Vanilla Card Stock, Silver Glimmer Paper and Be of Good Cheer DSP
Accessories:  Big Shot, Labels Framelits, Dazzling Diamonds, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Paper-Piercing Tool, Stampin' Pierce Mat, Festive Paper-Piercing Pack, Gumball Green 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!!!
