Oh Christmas Tree!!!!

Wow!!!  I can't believe only ten more days before Christmas.  I hope to inspire a few of you with today's card.  But before we get started, crap your Gypsy and the following cricut cartridges:  December 25 and Elegant Edges.

White card base 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
blue mat 5 1/4" x 4"
White mat 5" x 3 3/4"
DCWV (The Glitter Christmas Stack) patterned mat 4 7/8" x 3 5/8" ** should be a little smaller than the white mat 
For this frame I used the cricut cartridge Elegant Edges.  On page 36, I cut the image <Bird1-s Oblong> at 3.85" in white cardstock.  Then I ran the frame through my cuttlebug using the snowflakes folder.

For this tree I used the cricut cartridge December 25th.  You will find this image on the third row ninth button over on the key pad.  I cut it at 3.25" out of silver cardstock from DCWV.

I strung rhinestones from Recollections to give the tree a little more glitter.

I covered the main star with a blue star button that I got from Hobby Lobby.  I needed to cover up the two little holes so I decided to add another rhinestone.

Before adhering the two smaller mats to the first two mats.  I needed to wrap some white ribbon around.  Then I foam taped the frame down and foam taped the tree onto of that.  Giving some dimension.  My finish touch was adding three silver pearls to each side of the ribbon.
