A Timber Christmas

Here's a Christmas card I just made using another great A-sized stamp set.  I love these little sets! 
This one is called A Timber and costs only $9.25 CAD, which includes 7 images.

Not a lot going on for this fairly simple card.  I inked up the tree image and stamped it once onto scrap paper, then rolled the edges in the same NEI ink before stamping it, to give it some depth.  I pop-dotted the present, dry embossed the Colonial White cardstock at the top, and crimped the Cranberry CS strip.  I was going to use Cranberry brads to decorate the tree with, but then remembered I had these red sparkles.  I like how they add the right touch.

Happy creating!  :)

Paper:  Mistletoe B&T; Colonial White, New England Ivy, Cranberry CS

As always, I love your creations. Clever idea to crimp you accent cs. You know I will have to CASE this.

Vicki, this is a great card - the elements are just so perfect together and there is enough detail to be interesting, but not so many that it would be impossible to make 20 or so of them! I {{heart}} it!
