Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

Another easy peasy card featuring Spellbinders Stylized Trees.

For the background, I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card with the Creative Expressions 7 1/2 x 5 3/4 Holly Vine Frame Embossing Folder (really lovely!). I went around the edges with some Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Star Twinkles and put aside to dry.

I cut all 3 trees in the Spellbinders Stylized Trees Die Set out of Coconut White Card. I also cut a trunk, a star and a couple of stands. I lightly rubbed some Phill Martin Frosty Jade Gilding Wax over the trees and some Frosty Mink Gilding Wax over the trunk and the stands.

 I added a little Sparkle Star Twinkles to the star using a little piece of Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the sentiment from John Lockwood's Holly Wreath Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using a die from the Spellbinders Holly Tags Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding a White 8mm Pearl to each corner and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat. The mat behind the pierced one is Coconut White Card coloured with PM Frosty Jade Colour Cloud Blending Ink using a Smoothie.

 Thanks for stopping by.
