Christmas Trees!

Christmas Trees!
This is the first Christmas card I made for year 2012! I know it is quite late to start but my inspirations and mood just kicked in.

The Alley Way Stamps (TAWS) BE Inspired Challenge #17
I thought I do not want to make any Christmas card this year as my mood for Christmas is not very welcoming. However, when I saw The Alley Way Stamps (TAWS) BE Inspired Challenge #17 photo (as shown above), it just prompted me to use their freebie trees to make a Christmas card! The presents in the photo has linked me to think of Christmas tree as usually bunch of presents like this found at the bottom of Christmas tree!

AnnaBelle Stamps Blog Challenge AC151
I adopt the the simple sketch from AnnaBelle Stamps Blog Challenge AC151 as shown above.

Close-up : Christmas trees
The freebie trees are die-cut into circle and colored using Copic markers. It is layered onto a red shimmering scallop circle.

Close-up : Sentiment
As for the sentiment, a yellow card stock is trimmed into a wide strip. The bottom of the strip is punched with some pattern and the sentiment is stamped onto it. It is attached onto a green card base follow by the red scallop circle as in the sketch.

Close-up : Snowflakes
The upper right corner, three (3) punched snowflakes are attached. Each of the snowflakes have gems on the center to give some dimension. Another clean and simple card.

Dimension : 12.7cm x 19.05cm or 5" x 7.5"
Type : Horizontal fold
Inlay : None
