My pile of unused Christmas dies is dwindling and I might actually keep my resolution to play with them all before Christmas. My family Christmas is not until the weekend after Christmas so I have a little time this week to play. I made this card yesterday with new dies from Dee's Distinctively (the swirls on the tree) and Penny Black (the Noel.) I started with an old tree die from Tim Holtz for Sizzix and die cut two in different greens, then layered together. I die cut the swirls out of two sided tape from Sookang and applied a couple different colors of Cosmic Shimmer gilding flakes from Creative Expressions.I really like this brand of gilding flakes because the flakes are smaller and there is a delightful mixture of color in each jar. I also punched a star (old punch from Tonic Studios) out of a gold gilding flake piece. I decorated the trees with the swirls of color and added a Noel die from Penny Black to finish the card.
I am entering this card in the Holidays challenge at Scrapy Land and the Winter Wonderland challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
