Christmas Tree Card - Guest Designer at Crop Stop

I'm back with another card on my guest spot for Crop Stop for November.
I kept with the Holiday theme as I am trying to get all mine completed and ready to head back to England with my Mum and I know we all need some extra inspiration at this very busy crafting time of year.



Christmas Tree Card:
Crop Stop Products:
Crafts Too Christmas Tree Embossing Folder
Cranberry Stickles
Gunmetal Stickles
Golden Rod Stickles
Antique Gold Burlap String
Couture Creations Cafe Creme Pearls
Martha Stewart Doily Garden Trim Border Punch
Couture Creations 1/4" double sided tape
Other:
Lemon Flower Paper Stack by DCWV
Silver Cardstock by American Crafts
All My Memories Deck the Halls Sticker


In my box of Christmas crafting goodies I found some fancy gift tags and the ornament (or bauble for my British friends) came off it, perfect for my message mat embellishment along with the twine.



This gorgeous Christmas Tree is the design from the Crafts Too Christmas Tree Embossing Folder that I embossed into silver cardstock and then cut out around the outline. I added Stickles in various colors to the indented parts of the design to accent the ornaments and the star.

Gorgeous tree, Katie, and great job of fussy cutting it! I still miss your recipe challenges but for this moment I just want to say I'm so tickled you decided to play along in our "A/G or Holiday" challenge at 613 Avenue Create this week. Happy Stamping.

Okay, this is flat out gorgeous! Almost makes me wish I celebrated Christmas! This card is elegant with a touch of whimsey and I really like that! This one will be displayed on someone's mantle (or tree) I am sure. Love each element particularly the Gold highlights. Silver, gold and black are amazing together when the proportions are correct and your are. The green in the paper and on your sentiment keeps everything cohesive! Thanks for propping this up against our front door here at 613 Avenue Create! We were truly delighted to see it!
Hugz,
Chana, Owner

Cutting out your tree from the embossing folder was very kewl. I haven't seen that done anywhere before.
