O' Christmas Tree

Have you started your Christmas cards yet? I've made a few, but really need to get busy if I'm going to have them done to mail on time!   I used two of the new sets that were released at Our Daily Bread Designs this month - Perfect Gift and O Christmas Tree Carol to create my card.

I started out by stamping the O Christmas Tree Carol in Black on White card stock, then cut the Window opening using Our Daily Bread Designs Custom Window Die.  I lightly tacked the stamped panel to Espresso card stock, then cut the opening again, and repeated this with the Cherry base card, that way the window opening would line up all the way through.  I adhered a piece of acetate between the panels, then added the Espresso Window to the outside and the Cherry Window.  Both the Tree and O Christmas Tree Carol stamps are colored with STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell WC Crayons.  To embellish I added a Basque Red Vintage Seam Binding Double Bow and added some Dry Glitter to the Pinecones and tree Ornaments.

Lovely... I've always liked the sense of peeking into things, so I think the window framing device is wonderful! Beautifully decorated tree too...
