This card began as an 8x8 card blank that I cut down to 8x7. Next I adhered a traditional Christmas paper to the front of the card. Using some green card stock and Spellbinders 'holiday tree 2010' die set I cut out all three sizes of trees. Whilst still in the die I inked through each one with a different green distressing ink. I used pine needles, peeled paint and evergreen bough. I then layered the trees up with foam pads before adhering them to the left hand side of the card.
Next using some more green card stock I die cut a mat for the sentiment using Spellbinders 'labels 33' die set. I then typed the sentiment on the computer using Word and printed it onto white card stock. It was then die cut with a smaller labels 33 die. Whilst still in the die I inked over with barn door distress ink. The sentiment and mat were adhered together and added to the right hand side of the card. Finally I used some green card stock and die cut four corners using Spellbinders 'holly accents' dies set. The corners were adhered onto each corner to finish the card.
