Brights Christmas Tree Card

This card measures 5.75ins x 5.75ins using a white linen effect card blank.  The paper is from the Dovecraft Merry Magic 12” x 12” paper pack.
Contemporary Bright Colours Christmas Tree CardI would say 99% of my Christmas cards are in muted or traditional colours and designs, but when I saw this pack of bright, modern papers I just had to have it and it being reduced to just £2 for a pack of 36 papers, well, it a no brainer.
Bright Colours Christmas Tree CardThe card is very basic, no frills, using a bit of mat and layering, assorted plain and scalloped edge circle punches and a Craftwork Cards Christmas Sentiment Circle plus three green, flat back gems.
Contemporary Christmas Tree CardI think that the card would also work well without the band and sentiment, it would be a fiddle fart but all those snowflakes on the trees could be embellished with assorted, tiny flat back gems and the  stripes on the other trees could be accentuated by the odd line of translucent micro glitter running across the tree ……. so watch this space ……

I love the nontraditional colors of this card. It's so bright and cheery. You might want to have a nice big "adult" drink next to you while you place all those teensy flat-backed gems and glittery lines on the Christmas trees of your next card. That will definitely be a lot of fiddle-farting!
