Christmas Card Club Winter Wonderland

Stampin' Up! UK Festival of Trees
At last I'm back with Christmas Card Club and hope to keep on top of the challenges.  This time the theme from Christine is Winter Wonderland. I thought these lovely trees on whisper white were just right and the back ground paper (Trim the Tree Paper Stack) is very scandanavian in its design and so lends itself well to the thought of winter and a wonderland of snow!  I love these trees from Stampin' Up! UK's winter catalogue stamp set Festival of Trees.  They have a coordinating punch so it makes it easy to stamp them and punch them with no fuss.  It's also a two-step stamp set and in photopolymer so you can see straight through it and then add the red trimming again with no fuss which has to be a bonus when you are making Christmas cards.  Some rhinestones for the sparkle of the snow and a simple but well meant sentiment for the finishing touches.  This is also a great way to use up those odd strips of patterned paper as of course it doesn't need to go right across your card, but just from the sides once the white layer is added you'd never know.

Do pop back tomorrow as I've been nominated by my lovely friend and customer Jayne, to take part in the unique blog hop! Come back to find out more about it!

Also don't forget to visit all the other lovely ladies in The Christmas Card Club for inspiration.
