Day 8 of 25 Days

Hello crafty friends,
Hope you’re having a craft-filled day today! I am sharing another Christmas card today.
c tree-punart-480
Here’s my card. It is a pretty simple card. I used my Spellbinders Frames for the background. I used and EK Success Tree punch for the base of the tree. For the “tree branches” I used a Martha Stewart Punch to layer the leaves. I just used the base of the tree to position leaves. For the border I used an EK Success border punch and just punched it back to back. I then threaded some ribbon through it. Shocking, but here is another card created without any of my beloved Die Cuts With A View Patterned Paper...lol!
