Matchbox Tree

I had fun making this Tree! I love to make shaped cards, and that was what I set out to do ...when I began making this. I embossed my Wasabi card using my Herringbone Cuttlebug folder, then die cut the tree with my Nested Pine Trees Shapeabilities. I die cut all of the little snowflakes (using the Snowflakes Borderabilities set), then I accented the centers with Taylor's Twinkles. I adhered them on my tree with Tombo glue. At that point I began thinking my tree would be so much cuter with a stand. I thought about using my Matchbox die for the stand by cutting a couple of slits into the top of the box to support my tree. It worked perfectly! I knew I had the perfect sentiment (from Oh Christmas Tree/Lizzie Anne Designs) for my tree, then stamped and punched it out with my Modern Label punch. Now I have a cute decorative card with the gift box included. How cool is that?

Stamps: Oh Christmas Tree (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Card Stock: Wild Wasabi, White, textured Red

Accessories: Nested Pine Trees Shapeabilities, Snowflake Borderabilities, Herringbone Cuttlebug Folder, Scor-Tape, Taylor's Multi-Colored Twinkles & Tombo Multi Glue, Matchbox Bigz XL die, Modern Label punch, Hobby Blade and Tim Holtz ruler

This is adorable, Rose Ann, and you've got your little matchbox so you can put a surprise inside. I love it! All the things you used to create this sound like it was so much fun. Love that Herringbone folder. I'm planning a trip to EP to stock up on new folders. I just love to emboss!
