Our Daily Bread Designs Guest-Designer Week 4

     Thanks so much for stopping in for my fourth week as a guest-designer for Our Daily Bread Designs.
      I could hardly wait to show my next card to you. I just love how the Christmas tree came out! I used the stem-with-leaves die from ODBD's Fancy Foliage die set. I'll get to the details in just a minute.
     To begin, I made a 7 x 5 white card base. Using some gorgeous ODBD patterned papers, I cut various sized panels and matted them with  a tan/taupe/beige paper.
     I die-cut the snowflakes from another sheet of patterned paper. I adhered them to the card as shown. I used foam tape on the snowflake nearest the tree and heat-embossed the sentiment.
     Now for the tree! I love finding new ways to use my dies and other supplies, and that is just what I did to make my tree.  I adhered a 1/8" x 3.25" strip down the front of the panel. I die-cut 10 stems. To get them to flow - or swoop - in the right direction, I die-cut 5 of the 10 stems with the right side of the paper facing me. I die-cut the other 5 stems with the wrong side of the paper facing me. Beginning at the bottom, I layered the stems as shown allowing the stems to overlap and fall at a steeper angle as I went up. I added clear gems as ornaments and a tree-topper-star.

Oh, Pamela, I just had to visit and read more about your creative process on this beautiful card! It really is one of my favorites, and you've delighted us each week this month with a wonderful card! I just love how you've used the Fancy Foliage leaf (and reversed it) for the Christmas tree! It's fabulous and makes such a beautiful tree! I totally love it, and your cards are so beautifully made! Thank you for sharing your creativity. Warm hugs, and a blessed Thanksgiving!

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous, Pamela! I have the paper, but don't have the foliage die or pearls. Will have to get them! Absolutely beautiful!
