DT post by Heather - Merry Christmas Trees

Hi there! Heather here from Houses Built of Cards! I am having so much fun with the beautiful new release from My Craft Spot! I love Christmas, and all the sentiments are as beautiful as can be. So...I was inspired to put together another card to share, using one of the newly released stamp sets! Here it is:

I used a sentiment from the Mistletoe stamp set:

All my card elements were cut using my Silhouette Cameo, and a file from the Silhouette store.

I used a combination of older pattern papers from October Afternoon, and My Mind's Eye.

The trees are attached with foam adhesive for dimension, as well as the main scallop image. I also inked the edges of all my cuts with Tim Holtz distress ink.

Added some brown jute twine, and a couple of stick on pearls under the sentiment.

I hope you are enjoying your Christmas preparations! If you need some wonderful Christmas and winter sentiments, make sure and check out this wonderful new stamp release!
