Festive & Fun Alternates....

This is basically the same card as the one for the Tuesday Project Sheet.  The main difference is that I used the BEARY CHRISTMAS 12" X 12" designer series paper (162015) on page 23 in the Mini Catalog for the background.


Tree Die 2
This is the TINY CHRISTMAS TREES DIE (162114) that you can find on page 13 in the Mini Catalog.  It cleanly and easily cuts the tiny trees ~ which you could save for a cute shaker card!!

IMG_0238Another alternate.  I used the die on the foil and layered it over a piece of Basic White cardstock.  Same card/different look.  Join me for a Christmas Card Class.  I have two at the end of the month and both of them support the Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters here in Norfolk.  I will have all supplies for you, my donation.  You pay $30 for the class and that money is donated to CHKD.

Tuesday Project Sheet

I made this fun card last weekend using the FFESTIVE & FUN stamp set on page 13 in Stampin' Up's Mini Catalog.  I used the TINY CHRISTMAS TREES DIE and the GRANNY APPLE GREEN FOIL for the background and colored Mr. Giraffe with the blends ~ Real Red, Wild Wheat, Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green.  I also added ENAMEL EFFECTS in Real Red to add a 3-D effect to the ornaments on the tree!  Print off the Project Sheet and enjoy this silly card.
