Glittery Christmas Tree


Hi,I used my new Impression Obsession tree die to create this card.
My first attempt was scrapped as the glitter paper is so thin it was too hard to glue down.
I glued the glitter paper to a sheet of thin card then die cut it and it held it's shape much better.

I'm going to link up to a few challenges:


I punched my holly leaves out of snippets of green and red, so I'm visiting the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Materials used: Cuttlebug Holly leaves ef: IO tree die; Martha Stewart holly punch; glitter paper.

Thanks for visiting :)

  3. Lovely die cut... yes, sometimes thin paper just cannot take all that. I like your three dimensional leaves. They look so real.

  9. Cathy, this is gorgeous (as usual!) Love those IO dies, and good tip on the ltweight glitter paper. These tiny or slim pieces can give me fits trying to adhere on a card front (sentiment dies can be tricky too, to get them even). This turned out beautifully & loved the corner holly. The red swirled tree really sparkled against the white background. TFS & Hugs

  13. This is so gorgeous with the glittler paper of the tree and the sentiment. Great idea to glue the thinner paper to some cardstock!
