Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is our favorite dies from the Jul-Dec mini with NO stamping, other than a greeting. This one was easy for me because I'm entranced by the Christmas Trees Dies that are part of the Whimsy & Wonder Suite on pages 24 and 25.
After die cutting the tree in Basic White and stamping the greeting, a Window Sheet was cut to fit the back and adhered with Tear & Tape Adhesive. Then strips of foam adhesive were added around the edges of the tree as well as the 4" x 5-1/4" card panel.
I put a pile of sequins on the Soft Succulent card base and used the Take Your Pick Tool to pick out the ones I didn't want to use (all the silver ones). That tool is so handy, not just for plucking out unwanted sequins, but for cleaning up stray bits of embossing powder before using the heat tool, too!
The garland on the tree and the stars were adhered with Shimmery Crystal Effects. That's all from me for today! Click the Next button to jump over to Libby Fens at Libby Stamps, or the Back button to see what Mary Brown at Stamper Camper's Corner has made!
