Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs Christmas Tree Collage, Sparkling Snowflakes, Snowflake Mini Set.  Bag and Frames cut with Silhouette Cameo

The focal image on my projects is one of ODBD's Best Selling sets called Christmas Tree Collage.  I also used Sparkling Snowflakes and the Snowflake Mini Set from the December Release.

To create my projects, I stamped the Christmas Tree Collage in Chocolate Ink on Vanilla card stock, and colored the tree with STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell WC Pencils, blending with Gamsol, and the ornaments with Mars Graphic Watercolor Markers.  The stamped panel was sponged with Chocolate ink.  The cut frame pieces were stamped in Chocolate and Malted Paint using images from the Snowflake and Snowflake Mini Set.  Both the frame pieces and bag were cut using the Silhouette Cameo and Gift Bag cut file.  To embellish I added some Basque Red Vintage Seam Binding.  The Seam Binding on the card was tied into a double bow using Becca's Peg Bow Maker.
