There’s only splendour for the sight

I’m sharing a CAS Christmas card I made featuring the gorgeous Spiral Christmas Tree die from Dixi Craft.

I decided to go with a Christmas tree on this card as that’s the optional twist at Happy Little Stampers in their current Christmas challenge.

Over at Sparkles Christmas they are challenging you to make a Christmas card with non-traditional colours.  I thought I’d play along and to help me pick my colours I used the colour palette from CAS Colours & Sketches.  So my tree is cut from Stampin’ Up! cardstock in Dapper Denim.  I cut two and layered them on top of each other to give some dimension to my card.  The star is cut from copper foil from La-La Land and I’ve decorated the tree with some gems I coloured with a Copic marker that was a pretty close match to Peekaboo Peach.
