Christmas Tree Card

This card was made using the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches, I just flipped it on its side. I also used the theme challenge from Cricut Cardz, which was to make a Christmas card with a mini banner on the front of it. The final challenge that I made this for was at 365 Cards. Their challenge was to use texture in three different ways: 1-heat or dry embossing, 2-glitter or flocking, 3-fabric or lace.
The card is 4 1/2"x5 1/4." I embossed the card base using the polka dots folder and my Cuttlebug. I cut a circle at 3 1/2" using a circle cutter and the red rectangle is cut at 3 3/4"x3 1/2." The white rectangle is 1/4" smaller than the red one and then I used a border punch from EK Success on one edge. I adhered them all to the card. I used a stamp and glue pad to stamp the tree onto the white rectangle. I then used some Martha Stewart aquamarine crystal glitter on the stamped image. I used some fabric twine to tie around the folded edge of the card for my third type of texture. I used some foil paper and cut the banner from it using Christmas Cheer and the fit to length feature. The letters are from Jasmine and cut at 1/2," using the real dial size feature. I added to silver brads to each end of the banner and attached it to the card with pop-dots.
