Christmas Card ~ Bows & Sparkles (post #3)

This card is my favorite Christmas one so far.
I stamped the Christmas sentiment tree with pine green ink onto the kraft card front.
Then to make the teeny tiny ornaments I used assorted tiny punches and the scraps from the foil and kraft paper used on the ornament card I made before.
I hand cut the little presents, added ribbon and tied tiny little ribbon bows to top them off.
I put in two pictures because they both accent the card in different ways.
The first one gives you a good idea of the card colors, highlights the ribbon and allows you to read the sentiment a little better.
The second one I took with a flash so the sparkly foil would show up but it washed out the other details.


*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Tree sentiment stamp from Stampin Up.
*Ponderosa Pine stamp pad from CTMH.
*Design paper from the DCWV Twinkle Glints Stack 6x6 pad.
*Assorted punches from EK Success, McGill Creativity and an unknown punch.
*Ribbon from my stash.

May your day always be filled with love.
