Christmas tree's for sale!!!!! Edwin is selling Christmas trees...but heck he seems to have climbed into one!! EDWIN!!!!! lol
This card i decided to make it into a shaker card. I coloured Edwin with distress inks. The papers are a mix of the new Pion Design papers for Christmas and also two different shades of green card stock. I wanted it to look like Edwin was climbing about in a Christmas tree so I used lots and lots of Magnolia doohickey leaf dies and layered them around the image. I also embossed the leaves with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. On Edwin's beads on the tree I used Perfect Peals in platinum.
Now isnt that Santa suits parts fabulous!!! This is from Noor!Design UK I just love this die!! I marked Santa's suit and also added some fake snow around the collar and cuffs. The 'December' is also from the Noor!Design shop too. I used little craft pegs to attach these to the card.
On the sleigh die from Magnolia and the Sign post also from there, I used the Snow marker to mae it look like there is snow on the sleigh and the sign.
The beads are a colourful mix of greens, yellows and white with some odd red beads thrown in to add colour.
The holly leaves are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the frosted apples are from Live and Love Crafts.
So I hope you will swing by and get your tree from Edwin!!!
