Silent Night

     I have been using my Christmas tree die a lot this year.   In all of my past cards with this die, I always used the tree solo. I had  wanted to do something different with it. This is what Icame up with.

   The tree in the middle is propped up with dimensionals. I doubled up the dimensionals on the littlest tree. I applied glue on the edges of the trees using a Q-tip in order for the shaved ice to adhere to the trees. I have always liked the contrast between white & dark blue.

    This is one of those cards that looks great in person vs a photo.  Since I am done with my Christmas cards for this year, I will probably make 3-4 more for next year. My goal was to have my cards mailed out by Dec. 1st.  Mission accomplished. I am sure I will still receive a card or two from someone who slipped off my radar, but since I have 2-3 extras, that probem will easily be remedied.

   Thanks for looking.

Man, I need to get on the ball with my cards! haha! Beautiful choice of colors, I love the contrast. The shaved glitter is the perfect touch; it looks like a light layer of snow on the tree branches.
