Fanfare Christmas tree

I'm a big fan of Avery Elle's Fanfare stamp set, especially the cool wave border. 
I wanted to try another Christmas tree since the PTI die was still on my craft desk. 
The tree turned out exactly as I envisioned it. Love when that happens!


 The border stamp was inked in several shades of green ink and stamped on
white cardstock. After die cutting the tree, some pearls and gems were added
and the Hero Arts sentiment was also stamped in green. That's a lot of greenness!

I'm  happy to chalk up another card for Vera's card drive, and may crank out a
few more of these since it was so quick and easy!

Thanks so much for visiting today!
