I created this card a while ago for an inspiration challenge on Splitcoast.  I started with a 3″ x 5″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock . The bottom two corners were rounded and the Petite Christmas Tree was cut in the lower right corner. Carta Bella’s Merry & Bright patterned paper was adhered behind the tree cut out and the layers were stitched to a slightly bigger piece of black cardstock.

White cardstock was cut and embossed with a Spellbinders Nested Pennants die and a sentiment from the new Small Folded Banners Holidays was stamped over it in Jet Black Archival ink. A button was tied on to the right edge with silver cord before it was adhered to the upper left edge. Red striped washi tape was adhered over it.

Silver Rhinestones were adhered under the sentiment and on top of the tree. Baby Bling red rhinestones were added to the tree to finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping today! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
