Rainbow Christmas Tree


Hi, Friends.....

I am here to share a shiny card for the Christmas Kickstart - Rainbow Christmas challenge.   

I had to think about this to incorporate rainbow colors into a Christmas card....Hmmmm.  I happened to have a rainbow paper pad out for a different project and leafing through it found a gorgeous foiled piece that I thought would be perfect.  Yes, you heard it correctly.  I pulled out a brand-new gorgeous uncut piece of cardstock to use....not a scrap or snippet to be found on this card!  

One of my crafty resolutions for 2022 is to NOT DIE before I use at least some of the pretty things in my stash!!!!  lol...  I do not always HAVE to use scraps.  I give myself (AND YOU!!) permission to use the pretty stuff.  You're welcome.  ❤

I went rather CAS with this card, but attaching those fiddly thin die-cuts on the embossed background without a bunch of gloozing was harder for me than it looks!  You know what I mean by gloozing...where the liquid glue oozes out from beneath the die cut.  I've tried cutting these out with adhesive sheets, but I get adhesive webs that I have to clear out.  Ugh..reminds me of spiders!!  Eeek.  

The rainbow tree has little mini-dots on it, so I used a dotty embossing folder for the background, too, that reminds me of snow falling.  I love how this turned out. 

Supplies used include:
Clearly Besotted -Tree and Tinsel dies (retired)
Poppystamps - Fancy Merry Christmas die (retired)
Darice - Dot Background 5"x7" embossing folder (retired)

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you liked my card.  The  Christmas Kickstart - Rainbow Christmas challenge is open for another week and a half, so there is plenty of time to join in!  See you there!!
