Mery Christmas!

Hi everyone!  Happy Thursday!!

Here is a card I created for this week's Sketch Challenge on SCS, SC354.  I pulled out some new goodies from Taylored Expressions to create this card...I really need to get moving on my Christmas cards!

For the focal panel, I cut out the Christmas Tree using the new Trim The Tree Taylored Die.  LOVE this set of dies!  I cut out the complete tree out of chocolate cardstock and then cut out the tree pieces (there are lots of dies in this set) out of patterned paper, which is all Season's Greetings from Echo Park Papers.  I added the different panels using Foam Tape so there is lots of dimension on the tree.

For the large red panel, I rounded the corners with my Corner Chomper, added some Bon Bon Twine as well as a button.  For the panel under the tree, I used the new (and fabulous) Totally Tags Taylored Dies to cut the green panel, and then traced the die with a pencil onto the chocolate panel and cut it out to layer.  All of the panels were sewn on my sewing machine and I added three vintage brads to the Totally Tags panel.    The sentiment, "Merry Christmas" is from my most favorite set of the new release, Woodland Winter!


Here are the Taylored Dies I've used on my card:
