I choose a 4 x 4 square card and incorporated the colorful, "retro" Christmas tree bulbs created with the Stocking Accents Originals Die (Holiday Mini Catalog, 124099). I used the same adorable die (the Christmas tree design) on this previous project with the wine bottle tags!
- If you are a texture maven like me, you'll love the effect the Snow Burst embossing folder added to the tree bulbs and large circle.
- I recropped the bulbs with just a touch of Silver Glimmer Paper at the top for added sparkle.
- Itty bitty bits of Mini Glue dots keep the silver cord (retired) in place.
- What? No envelopes for a 4 x 4 card? Check out my Easiest Ever Envelope Video to see how you can customize your own in a snap using the Stampin' Up! Simply Scored Scoring Tool and Designer Series Paper.
