Holiday Tree

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas! LOL  Did I skeer' you for a minute there!?  But seriously - it is never too early to start those Christmas cards for this year - you know - the ones you were going to hand make last year but.....

I have used one of the new release Dies from Spellbinders - how adorable is this Christmas Tree - it has been cut and embossed using the 2013 Holiday Trees Spellbinder® Nestabilities® and the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine . Using the Die as a Stencil adds more dimension to the tree,  I have used the IMAGINECrafts®/Tsukineko® Brilliance™ Pigment Ink in Poppy Red.  The Holiday Tree has been layered onto a Floral Ovals #3 Spellbinders® Nestabilities.

The background paper is from Basic Grey and has been embossed using Infinity M-Bossabilities™ folder and then lightly sanded. A Seam Binding bow is added and some bling from my stash added.

The layered Dies have been adhered to a Lace doily and has some of the  Want2Scrap© Baby Bling added  around the doily.

This card is for the following challenges: 
Crimbo Crackers - Anything Goes
