Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is MODERN CHRISTMAS. I thought some non-traditional colors would work, and paired a couple of new papers with a retiring one.
Rather than go with the usual decorated tree or wreath or sprigs of holly, I chose the smaller die cut tree in the Tree Trimmings Dies and cut some from Boughs of Holly DSP, but left them undecorated.
The trees were adhered over the GORGEOUS gold Fine Shimmer Paper (coming Jan. 5th) that was cut with the Split Cards Textures die. The gold die cut was adhered to Delicate Desert DSP (also coming Jan. 5th) and then to a Very Vanilla mat before being attached to the card base. That gold Fine Shimmer is so beautiful, I didn't feel a need to add any more bling!
That's all for today - see you Saturday the 31st! We're taking next week off for the holiday. Wishing you and yours a warm, wonderful day filled with happy memories!
