CCT Treemendous : Christmas Tree

Hello and welcome to another CCT Thursday.  The theme this week is 'tree-mendous' so we want to see trees or leaves on your cards.  I was wondering what to do at first then realised I had an image coloured up and ready to go.  It's one of the LOTV christmas stamps and this one decorating the christmas tree fits the theme perfectly and it means I've got another christmas card ready to go.  Well the rate August is zipping by I think I need to start now, don't you?!

It's all very simple (can't seem to make any other kind at the moment!) and I've used non christmas papers but thought the stars tied in nicely with the ones in the image and I had to use my Viva decor pearl pen again for the silver half pearls as I'm determined to try and get them to look rounder.  These ones don't look too bad and I think it's easier when they're bigger blobs.  and yes, that is indeed a peel off wording in the corner (got stacks of the stuff so thought I may as well and try to use them in small doses)

  • Stamps: LOTV not sure of his proper name but it's one of the new christmas releases.
  • Colouring: Copics with distress stickles 'picket fence', in the hat fur trim for bit of texture and Viva holographic glitter liner in the stars for sparkle
  • Paper:American crafts 'everyday' with green cardstock and some silver mirri card for matting and layering
  • Tools: star punch, chain punch, photo corner punch and tracing wheel for faux stitching holes and silver gel pen for the stitches
  • Others: Viva Decor Pearl pen in Chrome silver, peel off wording!

    Thanks for stopping by and I will be back sometime before the end of this week as I've actually got another card to show. So until then
