Glitter and more glitter!!! I fell in love with the Tim Holtz heart/wing sizzix die about a year ago and have used it for quite a few different holiday cards. I wanted to do a whimsical card and decided to include the wings with the Christmas tree -- something fun as well as different! The background paper is a copper glitter design, the tree is a rectangle I cut by hand from another glitter paper, and the wings were die cut from champagne-color glitter paper. I used a SU border punch for the scallops around the tree edges. I used a Fiskar star punch on copper glitter paper for the top of the tree and embellished it with a SU tiny jingle bell for some added whimsy. The soft suede taffeta ribbon was attached using a tape runner prior to pleating the ribbon. The SU white velvet ribbon give the card a little bit of texture and old-fashioned feeling. I used dimension dots to lift the tree off the top of the card to give it some height. The verse was stamped using soft suede ink and cut by hand. I added two tiny gold-color pearls along each side of the verse for a little more elegance.
The teddy bear in the background is one I designed for my fall craft shows this year -- he is just so darn adorable!
