I don't have any huge circular nesting dies so I drew around a tea plate!
I had a preshaped crad base to start - I cut and matted a matching shape out of some
Papermania 12 days of Christmas.
I punched two holes to tie the ribbon through.
I found some golden cardstock with which to make the trees and back the sentiment.
I embossed some gold paper stars and cut them out roughly -
these were added to the top of the trees.
The shape of the folds were defined with rhinestones.

This time I used double sided paper which added another dimension!
I then went on to a white on white (or ivory) version:
I used an edge embossing die to first emboss my card blank.
I tried it with the mistletoe pointing both up and down - but I prefer this way.
I added rhinestones, a small star and NOEL in sparkly foam letters.
I am going to submit this to
