Cuttlebugged Christmas

This is based on Mojo Monday #65. I wanted to use a bunch of new stuff, so I incorporated what I could. I also wanted to use the Treetops cut & emboss kit, which I bought MONTHS ago, and haven't used for a single Christmas card this year. Whoops?

The little charm is using PolyShrink! I LOVE this stuff, and can't wait to use it more. I punched out the circle, punched a 3/16" hole, stamped the "snowflake" in StazOn, and used my heat gun to shrink it. Man, that's fun! It looks like it's going to fold up and not work, but just be patient. There are some good tips on the Lucky Squirrel website. I attached it with a silver jump ring.

The rest of the card is fairly obvious. I used my new Nesties for the large circles. It's hard to see, but the white circle is embossed with Swiss Dots.

Stamps: Cute Converse, In the Spotlight (SU)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Blue Bayou cardstock, Soft Sky textured cardstock (SU)
Ink: Blue Bayou (SU), Timber Brown StazOn (Tsukineko)
Accessories: White ribbon, 1 1/4" circle punch, Word Window punch (SU), Large & Small standard circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Swiss Dots & Snowflakes embossing folder, Treetops cut & emboss kit, Cuttlebug (Provocraft), dew drops (The Robin's Nest), jump ring (Blue Moon Beads), PolyShrink (Lucky Squirrel), Heat tool (Marvy Uchida), Crop-o-dile (We R Memory Keepers)

I love the colours! You're WAY too crafty for me....... As you can see, I didn't get anything done and didn't post anything. I DID find the CUTEST Christmas chipboard pieces at Wal-mart though.

This is just darling. I love the way you put the trees on the edge of the circle. Just beautiful! Thanks for playing! :)
