Patchwork Christmas Tree

My Mr & Mrs card won the Woodware July Challenge and I had £12.00 to spend in my local craft shop (Japonica, Exmouth).  I was a bit like a kiddie in a sweetshop, but chose three lovely Christmas stamps.  One of them was the Large Patch Tree stamp which I used to make this card.  I'm going to enter this into Pixies Crafty Snippets challenge - this is my first time in the playground!

I embossed a piece of white pearlescent card using my Crafts-Too 'Twinkle' stars folder and then layered this onto a scrap of dark green card and then onto a pearlescent white card blank. I stamped the Christmas tree onto white card and cut around the shape.  I stamped the tree onto various snippets of green/red/fawn papers and attached them to the Christmas tree shape.   The heart was stamped onto dark green card and attached to the pot.  The Christmas tree was then attached to the front of the card.  As the card has used snippets,

Wow Kath, this is fabulous - brilliant stamps and such a great way to use snippets too. Sigh, you made me spend money - I just ordered this stamp having seen how totally great it is :(

And, welcome to the Playground for the very first time. Hope it isn't the last - just wipe the slide down unless you want damp drawers!!

Hugs, Di xx
