Silver Trees and Blue Snowflakes

Verve Trees

It's back to Christmas cards for just a bit longer as I need a few more for hand delivery to school teachers, a piano teacher, a soccer coach, and some neighbours.  Wasn't a hard sell as I was delighted to pull out this fabulous Verve tree die again :)

The red background paper with the swirls  is another "funky" paper from the Kris Kringle SEI pack I used on yesterday's card.  Guess I enjoyed walking on the wild side a bit more than I thought I would wink, wink!

I crimped the trees so they would stand out a bit more and embossed the white background panel for a bit of "snow" texture.  The sentiment tag finished things off.

Sorry about the frayed ribbon edge - hate when that happens.  Rest assured, the issue has been resolved!

Had a great lunch with my in-laws yesterday as we met for a gift exchange since they are heading to Alberta for Christmas this year.  I am so blessed to have them in my life and love them to bits!
