June Guest Designer - Christmas Craft Creations

Hi, everybody!  I'm happy to announce that I have been invited as a Guest Designer at Christmas Craft Creations for June!  Yay!  Our theme for the month is Trees, so I hope you can join us!  If you would like to view the challenge rules, they can be found on the sidebar here.

I made a set of three cards! 

I chose an older digital image from my stash called Winter Tree from Gingerloft (no longer in business).  I digitally changed the colour to blue, grey, and light blue and added a holiday sentiment beneath the image (Beccy's Place Christmas Blooms).  Using my paper trimmer I cut each image, along with the sentiment, into a rectangle and then rounded the corners.  

For the background I used Memory Box 3-D Embossing Folder Snowy Forest on white cardstock.  To create a snowbank that coordinates with the tree image, I tore some scraps of white cardstock and adhered.  The tree/sentiment panels are popped up with foam tape, and I added lots of glitter on the tree boughs. Below is a close-up so you can hopefully see the sparkle a bit better.

Please head over to Christmas Craft Creations and join our challenge! 

I would also like to join the following 10 challenges:

Hi dear Kitty!! Big congrats! You are collecting a lot of Gd spotlights lately, so well deserved as your talent shines so much!! How creative and stylish cards you made for CCC!!! Absolutely LOVE the idea you had for the design of your cards with the tore cardstock as snow for the background and the way it follow the lines of the snow on the topper!!! The lovely trees are so realistic and very beautiful with the changed colours - the blue ones are my favourites - and the sparkling on them looks just amazing!! Very well done!!!
Big hugs and love across the miles! Have a wonderful rest of the week!
