Merry and Bright, Featuring the Christmas Tree Die from Kat Scrappiness

Hello friends!  I had so much fun creating today's design team project, I couldn't stop at just one card. I've included a process video below, along with some different variations of this card.  Some are more traditional and some a little more whimsical and colorful.  This Christmas Tree Die, which is exclusive to Kat Scrappiness, is one of my absolute favorites this season.

I started out by adhering some 6x6 sheets of Scor-Tape to a piece of cardstock and cut the Christmas Tree die from that.

I used some of the Nuvo Glitters in Diamond, Olive Green, and Green Meadow to coat each layer of the tree.  I used my finger to rub the glitter into the adhesive, and then brushed the excess off with a paint brush.  These glitters are fairly new to Kat's shop and so far I love them.  They're very fine, which is something I look for in a glitter.

I used my favorite plaid paper from the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Christmas pack for my background.  I placed a piece of vellum over top, which is cut using the Stitched Scallop Rectangle dies by Gina Marie Designs.

Before assembling the card I added a bakers twine bow and some foam tape to the bottom of each layer on the tree for some added dimension.  I embossed my sentiment and cut around the "Merry" so it stands out against the background.  You may have heard me talk about the Avery Elle Merriest stamp set before - it's a wonderful set with sentiments for every occasion.  I highly recommend it as a staple in your stamp collection. 

To finish off the card I added some ornaments using Nuvo Crystal Drops in Woodland and Red Berry.

Because I had so much fun with this card design I created a few more variations, which I'll share below.  Leave me a comment and let me know which style you prefer!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I've included links to all of the products used below.
