Christmas Tree card

I need to get on with my Christmas cards!! The children are half way through their summer holidays and it always seems to be the countdown to Christmas once they go back to school.

This is an 8x8 card again. Matt and layered with red and embossed white card. The white is embossed using a Crafts Too embossing folder. The Christmas tree is cut using a Sue Wilson die. I have used a die by Sue Wilson from the Scandinavian collection ready for the personalised sentiment when I have decided who the card is for, I have completed the card with flat backed gems.
