Simple Elegant White Christmas


I have been playing with my embossing folders today trying hard to catch up with making my Christmas cards I think I still have about 50 to make so watch this space !!! lol
This one is one of the ones I made for my neighbours , simple and quick , its just a 6"x6" square white card I just gave it a scalloped edge with an SU boarder punch, added a die cut white tree that I had run through the Cuttlebug tree folder.
I added some tartan ribbon and some Martha Stewart birthstone gems to the tree and there you have it ............so simple !!
