Great Joy Treeline and Knit Christmas Card


I am just loving the color combo Linda is throwing our way in her 12 Tags of Christmas challenge, sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique.  This card is no exception!  I loved everything about Linda's tag, and recreated it almost identically.  This was a fun and quick project, so I hope you'll give it a try!


Since I have the Alterations On the Edge version of the treeline and not the thinlet, I just cut along the bottom to mimic that die.  I carefully lined up my stencil so that I could extend the pattern across my card base.


Have you been loving my jingle bells?  I got them at the Dollar Tree in red, gold, and silver!  What fun!  This is an oldie but goodie stamp that my mom and I have used countless times over the years, but I thought it was perfect for this particular card design.  I embossed it in white.  I used a cosmetic sponge to dab gesso around my die and around the edges of my card base.  I really loved how Linda used the holiday greens in white behind the bow.

I do love this color combination and you've done an amazing job on this card (as always)! I have been loving your jingle bells - thanks for sharing where you found them! You did a great job with your trees - will have to try this when I get to this point of Linda's challenge. I agree your sentiment is perfect and the red bow and jingle bells are striking. Beautiful, Autumn!! Hugs :-)
