I would like to share with you probably the last Christmas card I made this year. Claritystamps have set a challenge for December under the theme of TREES, so I am entering this card. I have always enjoyed Iris Folding so I combined that technique with the stamps and stencils from Clarity. The stencil that came with the Clarity Design Club this month was perfect. A little fiddly to cut out but that was ok.
Firstly I drew round the stencil in pencil onto some 7x7 Gelli card then cut out the inside of the tree. On the other side I stamped my background design, I did this after the cutting out just in case I spoilt the design.
Then it was just a question of choosing some papers for the tree design. Some gems were added to finished picture to look like lights twinkling on the tree and a little star at the top.

All I needed to do then was double mount it onto some blue then silver card and then onto an 8x8 card base.

Hope you all like this card and I look forward to seeing what the new challenge will be for January. I would also like to say Happy New Year to you all.
