Bitten by the Bug Christmas card


Ah, the first Christmas card of the season (for me, at least -- I know there are lots of you cardmakers who've been going since July!) -- this really gets me in the mood for my favorite season of the year! Our assignment at BBTB this week was to use this tree tag shape from the Joys of the Season cartridge with the card feature. I cut the card at 5 1/2", then cut the tree shape at 4" on real dial size in chipboard, light green, and polka dot green cardstocks for the different layers. I added rhinestones for a little bling and this great "celebrate the season" stamp from Stampin Up, done with white embossing powder. The pps are from Imaginisce. The scallop edge was done with the Fiskars Threading Water punch. TFL!
