OWH World Cardmaking Day Card Hop



Thanks for joining the OWH Blog Hop today. This organization is near and dear to my heart because my birth father was a Korean Vet and we had family at the Pentagon on 9-11. Thank you to the families and members of the armed forces for the sacrifices you have made for our Country.




Supplies:
Paper and Cardstock: Best Creations Merry Christmas
Lace: Micheal's

Tip: I colored the Christmas Tree for the bottom layer. On the second layer I cut the tree out and colored it. I then applied the red gemstone. I attached the tree to the angel with foam tape. I used Glossy Accents on the tree and then applied the Christmas Green Flower Soft. I then used Flower Soft Red Poppy for the flower.
I have blog candy for the hop:) You can win a Hero Arts Merry Christmas Trees Stamp Set:

  30. Love the ribbon accents at her dress hem and the side border. I like your fun idea to use to use up paper scraps too.

  31. Your card is beautiful! I love the idea of the pieced background. Your angel shows up so nicely against all of the color. I had to look at your card for awhile since you used my other favs (which I haven't used myself yet, but am very encouraged to do) - lace!! I use a lot of gems too, so I found those fabulous. Just a beautiful, lovely card. :)

  47. HI Elizabeth, I love the look of this card. The way the papers are layered it really makes it kind of look like a fabric card, :) YOu had visited my blog and asked what embossing folder I used on my Christmas tree card. I used the "Snow Burst" textured embossing folder from Stampin' UP! (I am an SU demo, :))

    My blog is www.reflectionssosweet.blogspot.com

    Happy Cardmaking, :)
