Fashion Girl decorates the Chirstmas tree

I just adore these stamps, the girl always looks so chic!

To create this card, I cut out two tree silhouettes on my Cricut using Penny Black Forest Glen Mix and Match Cardstock 07-003 available here, the edges of the tree were distressed with Pine Needles distress ink and when dry, I white embossed the Circles and Lines stamp 40-084.  I then added coloured nail heads with a Candi Cane cut the trees half way along the centre (one top to middle and the other middle to bottom) and slotted them together to make a freestanding tree.

The girl Simply Ornamental 4212K was stamped on a separate piece of white card stock, coloured with Copics and cut out.  The shimmer on the bauble was created using silver gilding flakes and lavender liquid pearls were added t give extra dimension.

The sentiment from the Christmas Friends set 30-084 was stamped and embossed in white on heat proof acetate and cut out. Here is the card from another angle to show how it stands up!

Thanks for visiting today and for all your comments, they mean so much to me.
