Just a very few days and our #1 grandson is due. His parents and sisters are anxious to meet him. Us grandparents are a bit on the excited side, too! I did raise four sons, but I’m a little out of practice changing a boy’s diaper. I know… cover up or DUCK!

This week, I’m sharing a more traditional Christmas card than I’m use to making. Red, Green and White. Pretty simple sketch, too.

I simply die cut the tree, first with patterned paper that had little stars; then a second die cut on matching cardstock. Glue them together to strengthen the tree. Then I used stickles to create the decor on the tree.

I added this gorgeous sparking ribbon and a few sparkling red dots. Put together quickly other than waiting on drying time. That seems to be the norm for me… always waiting for things to dry.

I used:

Stamp Simply Clear Stamps – O Christmas Tree (Tree)
Stamp Simply Steel Dies – O Christmas Tree
O Christmas Tree bundle

Stamp Simply Clear Stamps – Snowflake Blessings (sentiment)
Carta Bella – 6×6 – Happy Christmas
May Arts 3/8″ Metallic Velvet
Spellbinders Celebrations Die – Pierced Ovals
memento Bamboo Leaves
Red/Green cardstock
Adhesives (3M dimentionals/ScorTape)

Thanks for dropping by!
