Merry and Bright Bokeh Card

Good morning! I'm sharing over on the Neat and Tangled blog this morning - this Christmas card using my Neat and Tangled stamps a little creatively - I really like the "bokeh" style cards, and it occurred to me that it would work perfectly to make a Christmas tree!

 I used the solid and outline circle from Merry and Bright to build my tree, stamping each in a different shade of green ink, then stamping off 2 or 3 times to make it look like even more colors. The sentiment also came from this set. I added the star on top, and throughout the tree from Sparkle and Shine. I also used some Raspberry Red Satin Sequins, with a touch of black bling in the center.

I used some foam adhesive between a few of the layers, and also a bit of distress ink on the edges of the white card just to soften it a bit.

Pattern paper is from October Afternoon, and the stitched rectangle is a Lawn Fawn die. The tiny clothespin was in a pack I found at Michael's and just HAD to have - full of cute and fun colors! I tied some jute twine and added some tiny jingle bells to my card to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!
