My Project






For my project I made an easel card using a cute snowman stamp and of course it had to have the Christmas Trees in the background...I love Christmas trees! Then I recycled the inside ring of some scor tape, wrapped and tied two reels of ribbon around it, hand sewed the holly and poinsettia buttons and added the flower. The sentiment is taped to a circle of accetate in the middle of the wreath. Hope you like it! Don't forget to add your comments if you would like the chance to win this sweet set!
