This post is already long so I'll try to not to write as much as usual. I have five cards and two videos!! I'll let the videos do most of the talking. ;) This first one features the Geometric Tree die set by Julie Ebersole and there's so much you can do with it. I'm sharing four ideas to get you started.



Here's a close-up of the simple tree shaker with a confetti background and sparkling clear sequins. The sentiment for all four cards is from Season to Sparkle, also designed by Julie Ebersole.


This second close-up uses both of the dies in the Geometric Tree set together, creating a faceted tree with border. I die cut it from gold glitter cardstock for maximum impact.


My next card and video features Homespun Holiday, a 6x8 set designed by Brandi Kincaid, and this is one of my most favourite sets in this entire release! I guarantee you'll fall in love with it as soon as you lay your eyes on it.


My card features the tree in a bag. My card is a standard A2 so you can tell see how big it is. I love that it's big enough to be the main focus of a clean and simple card.



Here's a close-up of the partial die-cutting, where the top of the tree is popped up with foam tape and the bottom is still flat.


I just love those little bird ornaments! They remind me of the ones I collect from Crate & Barrel each year. To finish the card, I added a bunch of pearls in two different sizes, representing ball ornaments.


ALL prize winners will be announced at The CLASSroom on Friday, November 4, 2016Please check there on that date to see if you are a winner and for further details on claiming your prize!

All of these cards are calling my name loudly as I'm a big Christmas tree person - my house gets overrun with trees come Christmas. :) So these sets will probably make their way into my shopping cart and I especially love how you used the trees in the first card to create an artsy design.
