Christmas in July

It's our third challenge at Addicted to Stamps challenge blog and the theme for you this week is 'Christmas in July'
My card for the dt is an easel card cut on my Cuttlebug using a set of nesting bunting dies - they make a splendid Christmas tree shape - take a look


I cut out the 4 largest and ran them through the 'Bug again - this time in a snowflake embossing folder. I then layered them up using 3D foam pads.
Here's what it looks like stood up



The littlest die was used to make the 2 props - they were all decorated with emerald coloured flat backed gems and a S'U sentiment was added from Pines and Poinsettias.
Do please hop across and take a look at what the rest of the dt have made for this challenge and I will see you soon - Jacqueline xx

  8. Brilliant card Jacqueline - really love the way you've used the two little trees as stoppers. What a great use of the bunting dies - there is probably quite a limited use for them but if you can use them like this it's great.
