Scentsational Season Christmas Tree

Isn't this card absolutely stunning?  I thought so, that is why I had to make one.  I found this card on LeAnne's Wee Inklings blog.  

It caught my eye and I knew I had to make one.  It is a very easy card to make.  I didn't have a few of the supplies but I made do with what I had.  I've been finding that out more and more.  Make do with what you have.  I've been able to actually use the stuff I have on hand that way too!  Today the stuff on had was not anything retired, which is very unusual when I have to make do!

The base of the card is Very Vanilla.  On top of that I stamped the words from the Delightful Dozen set.  The original card had different wording, this is one of the "make do" spots.

I used Cherry Cobbler and I believe the original one is done using Melon Mambo for the card stock layer, words and ribbon.  I had the card stock and ink pad but I did not have the ribbon.  That is where my second "make do" came into play!  I used the white stitched ribbon.  I had also cut my Cherry Cobbler layer shorter because of my wording.  And I did not use the dotted embossing folder on the Cherry Cobbler either.  I figured it was too small of an area and the ribbon would take up most of it so you wouldn't see much of the dots anyway and I was right.  

The tree was stamped using Wild Wasabi and then the die was lined up and taped in place and the tree was then cut out.  I cut out 4 trees.  3 of them I folded in half.  Now keep in mind they don't line up once folded, they are not symmetrical.  I was able to hide most of that with the Dazzling Diamonds.  

The cute star on the top is in the Framelits Holiday Collection set along with the tree (and there's a gingerbread boy, a candy cane and a hot cocoa mug too! - so CUTE!!!).  The star is set in place on a dimensional and a rhinestone brad was set in place in the center.  

This was a fun card to copy.  It was quick and easy too!  You can't ask for much more than that!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
