Traditional Christmas... what does that make you think of! Santa? Bethlehem? Reindeer?
The thing that popped into my mind is "the tree" so I chose the lovely new set from Jane Gill. There are 2 sizes of trees & the one I've used here is the larger of the 2. This was quite a quick & simple card but I think quite elegant in it's simplicity. The top layer has been embossed with a snowflake embossing folder & then the french window die cut into the centre of it. I stamped the tree with dark green ink & coloured the pot with a pencil. I then positioned it behind the window using 3D foam tape & "decorated" it with peel off Sparklers. I've been a bit sneaky with the sentiment which has been stamped onto a punched label. The sentiment comes with the stamp set but is in a horizontal line so I masked each word with stencil tape & printed individually one word above the other. To finish I added a double organza bow & a Glitterdome in each corner.
