Oh, Christmas Tree... Woodware USA Challenge 37

Pin ItFor this month's Woodware USA challenges, I am going to be sharing cards using just a couple of their Christmas-themed stamp sets - Tree of Gifts & Christmas Labels. It's never too early to get started on your holiday cards, right? The new challenge for this week (WWUSAC37) is Anything Goes!

For the main image on this card, I used the large tree image from Tree of Gifts, stamped it with black ink and only colored in parts using a red COPIC marker. This helped to tie in the patterned paper in the background.

Since I wanted the image to be the focal point, while still including a sentiment, I used vellum to create the sentiment banner. The words came from one of the label images in the Christmas Labels set. The banner is folded and adhered in a way that makes it stand up off the card - really like the dimension it adds.

You can get all of the details on the challenge HERE. Make sure to play along and be entered to win the monthly prize.
Just the details… (1) Placed a star-shaped gem over the stamped star at the top of the tree, (2) Used smaller star-shaped gems on the vellum flag to tie in with the tree topper, (3) Folded and adhered the vellum strip so it was raised up off the card.
