Keeping Christmas Inspiration Hop - February

Welcome back for February's Keeping Christmas Series.

Keeping Christmas is hosted on Kelly Lunceford blog, she has been posting Keep Christmas for some time.

For my card, I started with simple layers. I am a little disappointed with my top layer, I used Distress ink to add some script on the background but after a few hrs it just seemed to be absorbed into the cardstock. If you look really close you can still see hints of it.

I die cut the tree twice, first with the gold shimmer paper then again with the plaid to get the body of the tree. I have the tree popped up with foam tape. I heat embossed the sentiment then finished with Nuvo glitter drops.

This card would be so easy to duplicate and make multiples.

Supplies: Kraft and brown cardstock, Designer Paper - Gold Shimmer and Echo Park, Penny Black - Script, Hero Arts - Banners & Messages, Penny Black - xmas tree, Nuvo - glitter drops.
