OCC: Oh! Christmas Tree

I'm so thrilled this time of year. I love the transition from Halloween to Thanksgiving, from Thanksgiving to Christmas. It is absolutely my favorite time of the year! The family, food and fun; the sharing, the caring, the love! Reflecting in the birth of Jesus really makes me feel grateful for all that he has done for me and the whole world.

This week on Our Creative Corner, Wendy Janson is our host with a challenge to begin ringing in the holidays. As Wendy puts it, "This is the weekend I like to put up my Christmas tree and decorations.  The challenge is to make a project with a Christmas tree (or pine tree if you would rather) on it." 

I'm not much of a CAS designer but sometimes, I can pull it off well. This card fits in that category (I think) with its simplicity in color, design and reserved layout.

I first stamped the green tree and then the sentiment. 

And then I broke out my Liquid Pearls in Rouge to create a garland. Talk about easy, fun and mailable! This could be one of the easiest cards I've made in a long time and since the holidays are a huge card-giving holiday, this would be perfect to make 10...20...even 50 at once if you wanted to.

Why don't you join us this week on Our Creative Corner? Create a project with a Christmas or pine tree. Take a look at what the other designers have cooked up for their Christmas Tree projects.

I can't wait to see what your "trees" look like this week!


  1. Love your card, Holly, especially the way you made the ornaments different sizes with the liquid pearls - what a great touch!

  2. PERFECTION, Holly!!! Love the liquid pearls!!

  3. Hi Holly! This, my friend, is sensational! I love the garland of liquid pearls and how you alternated the sizes. I really need to get some of this stuff...although I doubt I will be able to use it as perfectly as you did. ;) That sentiment is fantastic, too. Hope you had a great weekend! Big hugs!
