Red and White Christmas


Today I have a Christmas card using the Memory Box Arboscello tree die that I popped up on a piece of white cardstock cut with a SB Nestabilities labels 18. I cut two of the labels 18 panels, and trimmed one with a Lawn Fawn stitched hills die to create the pocket in which to place the tree. I was going to add some glitter to the tree and hills, but decided it looked fine without it. The tiny bird came from a retired SU! set and was fussy cut and popped up on foam tape. I added a piece of red satin ribbon, along with a SNSS sentiment, and lastly did the card base and red panels with stitched rectangle dies. That's another one added to my stash for Christmas :)

I'm entering this into the Memory Box #4 challenge which is " terrific trees."

I'm also taking this over to Pixie's Snippets Playground #194.

Thanks for stopping by and do have yourself a wonderful day!

This is gorgeous Carol and you're right it didn't need any glitter. I'm so impressed with your little bird. Fussy cutting that is amazing and he really does stand out. Barbxx

This is a beautiful tree die. I think it was a terrific idea to make that pocket the way you did. That cute little bird picked the prettiest tree to fly to, that's for sure. Enjoy your Sunday.

A fabulous card, the tree fits perfectly on SB label mat and I love the way you made the little pocket. Your fussy cutting of the tiny bird is very impressive, and he looks so sweet perched in the tree.

Such an elegant and pretty Christmas card! Really like your design.
I was given a die cut of one of those trees and I still have not used it (another NBUS item...smile) You're inspiring me to get it out and make a card with it.
Hope you were able to enjoy our beautiful weather that we had recently.
