Oh Christmas Tree

The middle of October and we're already seeing snowflakes here in the buckeye state! It's been a few years since the temps have fallen to freezing in the month of October but yet again, there has been snow for Halloween! Yikes.

The holiday season has begun and if you're a procrastinator (as I usually am) your holiday cards have yet to be done...

So here's the first in a series of seasonal cards. I probably will work backwards since I always start reading a magazine from back to front (doesn't everyone hahaha) and post what I've been working on recently.

Embossed Christmas Tree Red cardstock 5 ½”x8 ½” score at 4 ¼”, 3 ¼”x 4 7/8” Black cardstock 2 7/8”x4 5/8” Black dot paper 4”x5 ¼”, 4”x5 1/8” 1 white cardstock 3 1/8”x4 ¾”, silver mirrored cardstock 3 1/8”x4 ¾” Ribbon, hole punch, versamark ink, silver embossing powder, embossing powder bag, heat tool Fold the scored card in half. Layer mirrored on the red, this on the black dot. Powder the black cardstock and stamp your tree with the versamark ink. Pour the silver embossing powder on the stamped image and remove the excess powder. Heat with heat tool. Layer this on the top of the mirrored cardstock. With your hole punch, punch a hole on the bottom of the black embossed piece through all 4 layers. Take the ribbon and fold in half. From the back, using the ends of the ribbon together put through the hole (these 2 ends are the tails). Put the ribbon loop from back of card around the front of the card and pull the tails carefully on each side of the ribbon on the front and tie the knot. Stamp the white cardstock and layer on the other black dot paper. Adhere to the inside of the card. Simply Stampin stamps used – Holiday Tree ASC109 Joy of Christmas 1500614
