Christmas Card Club # 16 Lots Of Layers

Good morning everybody.  Time again for a card for the Christmas Card Club.  Hard to believe we are up to #16!  My Christmas cards are certainly mounting up nicely.  This time Lorraine asked us to show "Lots of Layers".

My Card


Ingredients
5" x 7" card base
white, red and red pearlescent card from stash
Snowflake Lattice e/f - Creative Expressions,Sue Wilson
Christmas Tree Greeting Die - Sue Wilson
A2 Bracket Borders One - Spellbinders.

This was such a quick and easy card to  put together.  I think I might simplify the layers a bit and use it for my bulk cards this year. ( I got five layers here - six if you include the base card!)  Mind you, I have said that with a few cards I have made so far!  I rarely used  traditional colours for my Christmas cards until the last couple of years but I have changed.  The red really does look very festive.  I won't be abandoning my non-trad colours altogether though.

If you have time please check out my sidebar for the blogs of my CCC pals and take a peek at what they have been doing but you will need to leave it until tomorrow.  I post my card early because this is the weekend I have three cards to post so I spread them out a wee bit.

Hope this finds you all well.

Hi Christine, sorry to be so late in visiting to enjoy this lovely red & white card. I LOVE that die cut word tree, and the embossed folder behind it - is just gorgeous. Also loved the S/B border treatment. One of my favorite looks...and so pretty on this beautiful card. TFS & Hugs

I so want to get hold of the Christmas Tree die for my church's Christmas cards that we give to a local service group each year when we give them an appreciation lunch just before Christmas - but have hitherto been unable to find one for sale. Do you know where I can get one? Helen bagheera49@gmail.com
