Lace Tree

Darnell has another NBUS (Never-Before-Used-Schtuff) challenge.  I bought this Cuttlebug Lace Tree embossing folder to make some quick Christmas cards last year, and it never got used.  It's perfect for the NBUS challenge and also to make another Christmas card towards this month's ten cards.  The mirri card and ribbon are from my snippets drawer, so this is another visit to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 6" x 4" white hammer
Embossing: Cuttlebug 'Lace Tree' folder
Other: Diamond Stickles
Snippets: Green mirri card, white hammered card and ribbon 

I embossed the tree onto white card, trimmed it to size, layered it onto green mirri card and attached it to the card front.   I used a fine paintbrush to spread the Stickles onto the tree and then attached a small green bow.   A quick card, which is why I bought the embossing folder last year!

Love this embossing folder, you can leave it plain as you have done or add gems and pearls to dress it up. Great card.

This is a LUSH CAS card, Kath! I would have called it a day with the just the tree, okay, maybe I would have matted it. But you went the extra mile to stickle this beauty and put a bow in her hair! I'm inspired!! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #4!! Hugs, Darnell
