SU red background edged with brown chalk ink; Bo Bunny brad; ribbon and sentiment sticker from my stash.

Purple Christmas trees

I love using Christmas trees on my cards so of course I had to have these Hero Arts trees when I saw them at my local shop. The trees are stamped in various inks and clear embossed. I made this card during a crafternoon at a friend's house and I thought it needed some extra texture. As I didn't have my Cuttlebug with me, I dry embossed diagonal lines on the pink card using my bone folder and ruler (very low tech!). SU striped paper; brads from my stash.
