Christmas Cards 2018-mar-09

Yay!  Another addition to my Christmas cards stash.

I am inspired by the stars, and the topiaries and the splash of red on the table from this Merry Monday Christmas Challenge #280 - Inspiration photo.

And this is what I came up with:

I die cut an extra piece using dark green card stock and layered it behind the Layered Topiary so give it some visual dimension.  Although it's hard to see I added some Stickles to the stars located in the center of the pattern paper panel, of course the red stars that adorn the topiary.

I think the Layered Topiary set is great for multiple occasions and holidays.  I could trim it like a Christmas tree, I could dress it up for Easter and Halloween, ..hmmm the possibilities!!

I love that you used the topiaries! I was headed in that direction when I set out making my card but ended up in another direction. Darling card! Thanks for joining us this week at Merry Monday!

Beautiful Christmas card and a nice idea to use the topiary tree rather than a tradition one. I love the shadow effect you created x
