It's Christmas All Around!


My first Christmas card of the season...makes my insides quake when I think of how much I know I have to do. Gotta start somewhere right?
I know of no better place to begin than the Cutting Cafe's Christmas All Around. This cute set has 6 3" circle images with sentiments PLUS 11 separate images to color and cut as you please.
I chose this "O Christmas Tree" circle and image. My card is 5" square. I used SCS Sketch Challenge 190 (SC190) The tree is watercolored with Pearlescent watercolors to give the tree a subtle shimmer. Those little stick on blingy things came on a big sheet of multi sizes from Michael's for about $2.
Head on over to the Cafe and see this great set for yourself...Regina has some beautiful eye candy there of her own. ;-)
Supplies:
Paper - Basic Grey Figgy Pudding, PTI Poppy Red, Aqua Mist
Ink - Pearlescent Watercolors, Old Olive, Ruby Red (sponging)
Accessories - Spellbinders circle and scalloped circle dies, ribbon, silver twine, button, bling stick-ons
Pin It!

Charlene, my friend, this is such a fun card!!! Love your ribbon treatment. This card reminds me of back home in Germany. That was one song we always sang. Oh Tannenbaum, oh Tannenbaum....., that's Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree in German ;D. Hugs and blessings, Sabrina
