Decorating the Tree - Frosty Festivities

Decorating or UN-decorating????

Hi, Friends......

Quick post here since the fan on my laptop is dead and I can only be on for brief periods before it overheats.  (Kinda amazing how much more I am getting done around the house!!  Ha.)

I have another card I made for Jennifer Grace's Frosty Festivities 2015.  This was inspired by her post here.  I ran with the idea of a line of trees.....but mine are progressively decorated.  :)

The tree and decorations are two different stamps that have been in my stash for so long that I have no idea what company they are made by or where they even came from!!!  Eeek!

I used scraps from my stash for the red and green panels and heat embossed the images and sentiment.  A little bling added just the right festive touch.

I better shut things down before my computer fries itself permanently onto my craft table!  Yikes!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

  16. Okay, I have been admiring this card on several challenge blogs for over a week but I have to ask if you made the 2nd panel by stamping the bare tree, and then over-stamping and embossing? This is such a clever idea to show the tree decorating progression that I'm going to have to figure out a way to do this myself! Each tree looks beautiful just on its own!

  17. How pretty! Love the embossing!! Thanks for linking up at Craftin desert Divas!

  18. Oh, I love the idea of them being progressively decorated! Fantastic! Thank you so much for joining in with Frosty Festivities 2015! x
