Christmas Card Club "Oh Christmas Tree"

Good morning all.
Had a very pleasant day out yesterday which included bumping into a very old school friend who I hadn't seen for some years although we do keep in touch with Christmas and Birthday cards.

It's time for our next challenge over at the Christmas Card Club, Dawn choose the theme this time "Oh Christmas Tree".  Here is my card:

I've used some more of my vast stock of Kanban foiled card, which I've put through an embossing folder along with a Kanban topper left over from a QVC Christmas POTD. The white card has been embossed with a Cuttlebug folder (I think!) and I've added twine to finish off.

You'll find the rest of the girls listed on my sidebar if you'd like to pop over and see their creations.

Challenges entered:
Little Claire's - Christmas
Bastel-traum - Christmas
Creatalicious - Christmas
Unstampabelles - Christmas
CHNC Extra - anything Christmas goes

  11. Very lovely, that background is so striking. Thanks for joining in our Christmas challenge at Unstampabelles this month.

  12. This is lovely Carol. Love all that beautiful shimmer from the blue background swirly, shimmery paper...I am thinking that must be the Kaban. We only have one shop here that sells Kaban and they only ever had a few sheets.
    I need to remember to use my shimmery stuff more...it is easier to remember at Christmas time...but when you are making cards all year, it is harder to remember in June or July...lol

    Beautiful card.

  13. Good morning Carol, firstly I have to apologise. I have missed some of your wonderful creations. Looked back and love each and every one, all so very different.
    Today`s offering is "Magical" I love the effect on the background, your Christmas Tree is beautiful finishing off the whole thing in style.
    Have a Great Day
