Oh Christmas Tree

Hi.

I meant to post this Friday, but things kept cropping up
and it didn't happen.  All good stuff though, so I'm not complaining.


I'm almost late for Merry Monday where Deanne is hosting this week.

Or should I say, last week?

I have set a goal to clean out my Christmas UFO box this year.

The emboss resist tree was tucked away in there and so was the dry embossed piece of green.

I rounded the corners with a punch and added some iridescent foil dots for decorations.

It looked like a tag to me, so I added a snippet of curled seam binding to the top.

Another Christmas card for the stash.

Since I used some snippets here, I'm going to skip over to
Pixie's Snippet Playground

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

This is gorgeous, Bonnie! I just got a stamp from Penny Black that is similar and after seeing your beautiful work with this, I can't wait to try it. Love the soft sponging on the white embossing!

Bonnie, that is an admirable goal to clear out your Christmas UFO box - I should do the same!! You found a couple of treasures to turn into this lovely card! Looking forward to seeing what else you find!

So pretty Bonnie. Love that gorgeous swirly tree. Looks so pretty with the soft green sponging. xx

Cherry cobler is one of my favorite SU colours, it looks so awesome with the green sponging around the swirly tree :)

Another great UFO turned into a little jewel. Love the soft glow from the sponged embossed resist, and that's a perfect tree for this effect. Your crumpled seam binding is so rich, I thought at first it was a velvet ribbon! Of course noticed one of my fav SU E/F as a mat too. TFS & Hugs

This is so pretty Bonnie and love the pretty green highlighted tree and the perfect embossed background to go with it. It is very satisfying to use up those UFO bits and I must take a leaf out of your book and do likewise. x
