I stamped my sentiment from the Holly Jolly stamp set, using VersaMark and dark brown embossing powder. I must say that I am in love with Laura's stamps! They are the highest quality acrylic on the market and produce a crystal clear image every time. I was so pleased when I embossed this sentiment...nothing got muddled like some of my other stamps do. Here's a closeup to show you how clean the sentiment is:
For my border, I used my new Recollections punch, some pretty lace ribbon, and my multi color earthy twine. I tied my button down with the twine after adhering my ribbon and decorative border, and added my pearl tree topper (by cutting the prongs off the back and adhering with a glue dot). I then popped up my frame layer with 1/4" foam tape, to give a lot of dimension around my tree that I adhered directly to the base of my card.
My tree trunk is actually three die cuts popped up with 1/16" foam tape. You can kind of see it in this photo:
That's really all there was to it! I love dimensional cards anyway, but this one just makes me smile :] Probably one of my favorite Christmas cards made to date ♥ I have a ton of ideas for this lil' tree, hopefully I'll have time to bring them to life.
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you are having an amazing week!
