O' Christmas Tree

I have another Christmas card to share today...using my 'Christmas Tree Cupcake' stamp by Indigo Blu. I coloured it using watercolour pencils, carefully cut it out, then gave it a generous coating of Stickles glitter glue. For the background, I embossed plain white card using my Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' and Sizzix 'Holly' folders. I distressed the edges a little, and cut the curve using one of my Lawn Fawn 'Stitched Hillside Border' dies. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous.
