O Christmas Tree!

Whew!  Just spent the last 3 days in the craft room with my bff, making cards.  We had SO much fun trying new things.  The polka dot ribbon is copy paper, stamped and folded.  I saw this on a live-stream tutorial by Tresa Black.  You can find the link here.  I wonder if there is anyone who doesn't follow Tresa's fabulous work!?

This "Evergreen" stamp set is from Close To My Heart, along with the cardstock. Cardstock was embossed with dotted swiss and then sanded down to the white core.  I layered my trees.  Far right is a single, far left is a double, and the middle tree is three layers total.  The star was a pain to get three layered, I need to come up with something dimensional for this, but cardstock was all I had at hand.  Yes it's true!  There are things that I NEED in my craft room still!  A dimensional star the right color of yellow is one!

I have several more cards to post over the next few days. These last few days were SO inspiring! I hope to keep working even those my dear friend is on her way home!  I hope you have a great weekend doing something fun. 

As always, thanks for stopping by!
