Come and trim my Christmas tree...

Sharing my first Christmas card design for my bulk cards featuring dies from Cottage Cutz and Impression Obsession.

The layout for these cards follows the current sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch.  I created the various elements with my papers and the die cut.  To make the designs different I changed up the base colours and also the designer papers, as well as the die cut.

I chose the die cuts to play along at Kreativ-Tanten where they are looking for Christmas trees on your project.  Over at If You Give a Crafter a Cookie, they have some lovely cookies for inspiration and there was one with a tree.  The cookie colour made me pick the kraft background and I added Nuvo drops to imitate the icing on the tree.

I’ve made up 10 of these cards, five each with the red and green border and the two designer papers and die cuts.  Now I just have another 40 cards to go!
