Personal Impressions Word Tree Christmas card

Hello there. Well the weather hereabouts is cold, grey and snowy but to my mind, that is a great excuse to get cosy in the craft room, so welcome back to a new challenge over at 

Our themes this time are

C- Clean

and or

D_ Distress

and our kind
Sponsor is

Lawn Fawn

$25 gift certificate to

I went for a clean design that will be easy to mass produce and be light on postage charges.

1) Take a rectangle of white card and use a corner rounder on the bottom before stamping the word tree stamp from Personal Impressions Peace stamp set in red ink.

2) Use a glue pen on the pot bow and trim, and add glitter.

3) Mat onto red card and round the corners again before raising it onto the base card with fun foam.

4) Finish off by adding a couple of die cut bows from the Penny Black Little Ornaments die set, and a red pearl at the top of the tree.

There were 94 entries last month, so it seems like lots of people want to get a head start on next year's cards! Why don't you hop over to the blog to see some fabulous inspiration from my talented teamies and join in with us to get your pile started?
