52CCT June Colour Challenge

I was thrilled to be chosen joint winner for this card here. Thank you 52CCT x

This weeks challenge over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown is a colour one and traditional Christmas colours!

Two shades of green, red PLUS the addition of either something metallic (gold, silver, antique, copper or shiny)

Desperate to use my new stamp set from Technique Tuesday "Be Jolly" I stamped the Christmas tree in the dark green. Lots of circles to fill in with other small stamped images and some punched red glitter paper. Instead of stamping the tree trunk I decided to cut it from red glitter paper. Tree complete now to add it to a card! I chose red card stock for my base, patterned paper with edges distressed plus a white embossed banner to go beneath the tree. Then added the sentiment. I was pleased with the result and then realised that I had forgotten to add the metallic element! So luckily I hadn't totally stuck down the paper so I tore the top edge and tucked a scallop punched edge of gold card behind. Then I punched another piece and used it to edge the bottom of the tree. A metallic gold bow completes. Phew!
