Snowy Tree for CAS Christmas

Hello friends! I'm glad you could pop in.

Today's card is a reminder that there's only about a week left to join in at
CAS Watercolour


Our sweet Hideko is hosting this month's challenge....

I had only used this little snow tree die once before and it was time to show it some more love.

I die cut all the layers from Glimmer Paper and a snowdrift too for good measure.

The background is a little piece of salted watercolor background. 
I'm down to the teeny tiny pieces of that.

I'v assembled the layers of the tree using dimensionals so it has lots of dimension.

A tiny die cut star finishes off the scene.

Do go to CAS Christmas and check out all the fantastic 
inspiration cards that our team and Guest Designer, Barb have done.


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Your salted watercolor background is beautiful, Bonnie! I also love all the sparkle on your tree, star, and snowdrift...it's so festive! Such a lovely sentiment, too!

Fabulous effect, Bonnie! Love how the tree has so much shape and dimension to it and the glitter paper is just gorgeous. What a beautiful, salted watercolor background too.

Oh wow, Bonnie! Loooove this snowy, glimmery tree! I just want to sip hot cocoa and watch the heavy snowfall from a window covering everything like a blanket! I think we could use some cold snowy times right now, huh? lol

Wow, Bonnie, what a wonderful idea to die-cut the tree (layers) out of glimmer paper! It looks like snow on the tree is reflecting the star light. I love it! The color of the salted watercolor sky is so beautiful and it also adds a nice texture to the scene. The simple pierced frame is just perfect. Hideko xx

Too funny... I have this die, have only ever used it once before too!... and almost pulled it out to create my reminder card! Whew, that was close. Love what you did with it — so sparkly and glittery. Pops beautifully against that gorgeous salted background. xx

Love this card....cutting the tree die pieces and snowdrift from glimmer paper vs. having to get snow look with more time consuming ways is just brilliant(!) and perfect against the salt technique background.

Before I even wrote this comment, I went off and bought that die! This card just took my breath away, Bon-Bon! The dementia and design are spectacular! Will that fold flat enough to put in a regular envie for mailing? Hugs, Dolly

This is beautiful. A lovely layered, sparkly tree and a soft winter sky. I loved the pictures of your craft room and I am packing. I will be moving in with you to be tutored. I can sleep on the porch - hopefully you have one.

Linda said...

Bonnie, a beautiful background to showcase your glittery Christmas tree. Hope you are having a great weekend.

Brenda said...

Wow Bonnie, I am loving that sky you have created and that wonderful tree! It is so cool looking-I love all the layers of it! Then there is your little star, so perfect to go with this beautiful card. I want to try and join in on this one, so will see if I can get it done before the deadline! Hugs, Brenda

Your layered tree is so pretty and sparkly Bonnie! Looks amazing with the salted watercolour background. It really does look like a cold winter's day with the design from the salt. So cool!! xx
