Light Up Your Christmas

Hello everyone!  I hope I am not boring you with my pre-seasonal Christmas spirit!  I am just so looking forward to this holiday season and the cards just keep popping into my head!  Today's card, Light up!, was made using two different cutting tools and Close To My Heart stamps and papers!

I cut the great Christmas lights with the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge in smooth white card stock.  I used three colors of CTMH ink and the CTMH Trim a Tree stamp set!  The bulbs were trimmed with gems shapes from the CTMH Sparkle Holiday Shapes, which coordinates with the Trim a Tree stamp set.

The tree branch was cut with an Elizabeth Craft metal die cut and my Grand Caliber cutting machine using CTMH card stock.  You know that hint for using metal die cuts where you add wax paper between the paper and the die?  I usually toss out the wax paper after I finish with the cut, but this time I used a micro tipped glue and added the wax paper layer over the green branch to add a touch of "snow".  I like the end result!

I finished the card with peel offs trims and words and a bit of dark brown twine.  I forgot to tell you above - I used the holiday card stock set, Sparkle and Shine paper pack.   

This is the new Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month - Illuminate!  This fun stamp set is available for the month of November only.  You can order the stamp set for $17.95, or with a $50.00 CTMH order you will be prompted to add the Stamp of the Month during check out for only $5.00.
