Lili Of the Valley James-Christmas Tree

This is a simple Christmas card that I made with Lili of the Valleys James-Christmas Tree.  I watercolored him with Distressed Inks and added Shabby White Frantage to the background.  I had just received my 7 Kids College Fund order and all the dies were in it! OH was I a happy die cutting girl!

Here is my card

I used a Go-Create die for the base and Majestic Opulent Ovals from Spellbinders to frame James the bear.  

Can you see the sparkle of glitter glue on the bulbs, star and holly?  It barely shows on the photo but they added some elegance to the card.
On top is my Memory Box die Star Flourish, I really love the whimsy of this die. 

On the sides I cut in half the Memory Box Die Sussex Snowflake so that it would show on each side of my image.  Noel is from Lili of the Valley and colored with Distressed Inks.

Here is a side view of my card. I used a sheet from Annabelles Christmas 6x6 pad for a soft touch of color. 

I like the simplicity of this card for mailing, cheap!

Thank you for visiting me today and I hope your day is going well!
