Christmas Tree

This card is 4 1/2"x6 1/4." I used a green cardstock for the card base, then trimmed some red cardstock 1/8" smaller. I cut some blue cardstock at 4 1/4"x6" and cut it into 3/4" strips. I embossed the strips with the Large Snowflakes embossing folder and my Cuttlebug. I cut some striped paper at 4 1/2"x3," some green cardstock at 4 1/2"x2 1/8" and some pink cardstock at 4 1/2"x2." I wrapped it with some red and white twine. I stamped the Christmas tree on white cardstock and used a Nestie to cut the label around it. I also stamped the tree on green, blue, brown, pink and red cardstock. I then cut all the pieces out and paper-pieced the tree. I added fruit punch and x-mas red Stickles to the pink and red pieces. I used foam adhesive to adhere my label for some dimension.

For the inside of the card I cut some red cardstock at 4 1/4"x6" and some white cardstock at 4"x5 3/4." I used a Scrappy Moms Stamp, from the Holiday to Remember set, for my sentiment. It is stamped in jumbo java ink by Tsukineko.

I made this card for the following challenges:
