Tree Trimmings - Preparing for Christmas in July

Friday, June 15, 2012


Another Christmas design incorporating an elegant piece of Letters to Santa designer series paper.  The predominant colour is Early Espresso and I've mixed in a little Riding Hood Red.  The En Francais background stamp was used to create the centre panel.  The Tree Trimmings ornament has been stamped and fussy cut twice.  I've layered them with a little 2-way glue pen down the centre which allowed for the edges to be push up together for a little 3D effect.  I had a matching red button and thought this was a nice way to add a little splash of red to decoration.
