Well, you can't get much more festive than the wonderful inspiration photo for the November PTI Blog hop!
I was inspired by the green bottle brush trees with all their ornaments, the pink in the bench and the green polka dotted box. I used the trees and sentiment and dies from Joyful Christmas and the Cake Plates dies (first time I've cracked these cake plate dies out of their packaging even though I've had them for more than a year!)
I added Martha Stewart Coarse Glitter to the trees to give the look of snowfall on the trees. The glitter makes the trees look blurry in the photos - it must be refracting the light all over the place! IRL they are clear and very glittery!
I used an oval Nestability for the opening - and the paper is from Green Boutique. I layered the oval die cut panel over the card base with foam dots. The Hibiscus Burst top of the cake plate and the tree are popped up as well.
There are 3 graduated size trees in the stamp set - and I originally was going to use all three on one card - but I decided that was going to get really busy looking! - so I made 3 cards - each one with just one tree!
Here's the baby tree - I made the oval cut smaller .
Three more Christmas cards for my box - it's almost time to start sending them out now!
I'm off to check out all of the other inspired cards - you'll find the blog hop on Nicole's blog here.
