Christmas Word Tree

We have an extra week for our Merry Monday Penguins.

So this isn't a Merry Monday card.

I thought I'd share a Christmas card anyway.


No penguins this time.

This is a lovely die cut that my friend Loll sent me.

I smooshed it.

You can see how to do this technique here.

Once it was good and dry, I glued it to a snippet of 
DSP that I cut with my Lil' Inker die and
added it to a gorgeous piece of DP that I had been hoarding
saving for a special occasion.


This fits for the Happy Little Stampers


Hope you have a wonderful Monday!

Thanks for the visit.

Enjoy!

So pretty. The smooshed tree really shines. And LOVE that background paper. No wonder you've been saving it ... perfect paired with the pretty tree. xx

WOW! Wonderful look to this die cut (wondering if it's a Sue Wilson, I see that she has one in this shape! I LOVE it). Love the smooshed colors too. Mine never turn out that stunningly. Looked at the bkground stripe and at first thought it was shimmery corrugated paper. So very pretty. A wonderful layout, and a super beautiful card! TFS & Hugs

I love this card! With the fine striping on the background piece at first I thought it was corrugated and I wondered how the die cut stayed on so well. Now I see it was my eyes playing tricks on me.

The smooshing is terrific, Bonnie, and I love all the patterned paper you used with the sentiment tree.
