Christmas Card in May

I'm getting some Christmas cards will be here before you know it! LOL

I used Papertrey Ink's In the Meadow tree die and ran it through a crimper.

I stretched it back to shape so it still looks like a tree!

The sentiment is from the In the Meadow stamp set...I tried something different.

I used two Spellbinder classic circles to partially cut a flap to tuck the tree in.

I have small cutting plates that came with my Ellison sidekick..they come in handy when I want to sandwich part of a die and run it through my Big Shot.

inspired me to use this gorgeous DP from Teresa Collins.

Hope your week is starting off great...if not, give it 'til tomorrow! ;)

God Bless.

  2. What a great idea to run the tree through the crimper, love how it turned out. The pattern paper is so beautiful against the white background so soft looking. Gorgeous card!!

  3. Marlena - that tree die cut is awesome, and looks really cool crimped. I also really like the way you created the little flap with your circle dies - great idea! Thank you so much for playing along with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  4. This is so elegant ant super stunning!

  5. This is so cool! I love making holiday cards when it's not the holiday (weird right?). I love the way you did the semicircles and tucked in the tree! Hope you're doing well!

  6. I just love the paper you chose for the tree! The blue is so unexpected but perfect for a snowy scene. Thanks for joining us this week at CAS-ual Fridays!
