Glistening Christmas Tree – by Deb Saaranen

(FREE RIBBON – details further down)

WOW! Today’s card is just breath-taking. Simplicity at its very best. Deb used the de-bossed side of her Christmas tree and filled the cavities with red rhinestones. Against the white it is absolutely striking! Take a look:

Such a simple, yet gorgeous, card design.

Please note that Deb use the de-bossed side of the tree image, rather than the embossed side. Check further down for a photo of a card she did previously using the embossed side. Options are fun!!!

The red is so very striking, but can’t you just see this in a variety of colors, too!

You can find Deb’s post on her blog here.

This is a card Deb did previously using the embossed side of the folder.

Compare it to today’s card where she used the other side – the de-bossed side. Both are lovely!
