Upright Z Fold Card

It is my turn to chose the theme this week at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges and I thought it would be fun to do Christmas Trees as the theme.

Looking around Pinterest I came across this Upright Z Fold card that I wanted to try and thought the Christmas tree would work well for this style of card. I stamped my tree rubber stamp in a Tsukineko Essential Glue pad and then on to a piece a suede paper and then coated the tree in Royal Blue glitter.  I stacked my glittered Christmas tree on several paper layers of paper and added some bling and a snowflake to complete the card.

Come and join us at Holly Jolly this week. If you need some inspiration check out the other Christmas Elves creations on the Holly Jolly blog. Have a creative day.
