Creative Holiday Cards Peace Tree!

Hello, friends!

Today I have a card that I made using the Creative Holiday Cards cartridge and the October Stamp of the Month. I thought it was cute, but a little boring until I added the little green epoxy bubbles and the white stitching. I have the hardest time keeping it simple. Am I alone in this?

I added some red shimmer trim to the edge of this card. It really looks good peeking out underneath the scallops.

Good Terrific Thursday morning to you dear Courtney. Your card is so pretty. I really love your faux stitching and the green epoxy stickers are so perfect I love using these too. You really did a great job showing how versatile this cartridge is by adding all your own creative touches. You are so creative and talented so thanks for sharing all your ideas.

Pretty card and I didn't notice the shimmery part till you pointed it out. And your added embellishment makes it stand out. I find myself doing the same thing, gotta unbore it tee hee. I love the faux stitching, and use it a lot.

I like the simplicity of this card. Wish I had that cartridge! Did you ever consider using a few red epoxy bubbles placed in a random fashion on the circle sections of the tree? Could be cute, too.
