Christmas tree in June

Hi, I don't usually start making christmas cards until maybe October, but Cuttlebug Mania has a Christmas in June challenge on this week.

I used my cuttlebug with the Stately embossing folder to frame the layers for my tree. I also cut the rectangle with a Spellbinders die to stamp the tree on.
 The stamp is one I've had for ages and I used gold embossing powder. The baubles are liquid pearls and the stars are leftovers from some of my sentiment sticker sheets.

Thanks for visiting :)

A beautiful and stunning Christmas card Cathy. I love the vintage feel to it. Your tree looks amazing in gold embossing, and the baubles and pearls just perfect.
