Gingham Christmas Tree Card

Sometimes it’s nice to get away from traditional Christmas colours and patterns , and I just love this black/brown gingham card from Payper Box.
Gingham Christmas Tree Card
Although it’s hard to see, the snow is made using white glitter card and is layered to look like drifts, to give a little dimension.  The trees are wooden embellishments from Hobbycraft with a few flat backed gems added and the tiny snowflakes are punched. I’ve made the corners by cutting a scalloped circle into quarters, but looking at the photograph now with fresh eyes, I think the corners could be made little bigger.

What a sweet card!
I personally wouldn't make the corners any bigger - They are large enough to frame the main focus, and small enough not to overpower the whole card. BUT... you know your style best - so go for it! *lol*

This is so those trees. #4 thinks that corners are just right.
