Simply Create Too - Early Christmas Wishes

In the mood for a little early Christmas?  Simply Create Too is having a Christmas Card Challenge.   I decided to start with the fancy Christmas Tree die from Top Dog Dies.  This is a large die so it takes up the majority of a A2 size card.  That doesn't allow much play for layers, and that's ok because I love a flat card at Christmas time.
Here's the thing.  I wanted a blingy card with green foil card stock showing through.  I know these are so hard to photograph - I wish you could see this one in person, it's really stunning! 

I added the sentiment at an angle to add a little interest, and the backer die behind the words keeps them from blending into the background.
So glad I have one more Christmas card done!    What are you working on today?









Finished Size 4.25 x 5.5"
Dies:  Top Dog Dies:  Christmas Tree, Merry Christmas
