Gingerbread Holly - Putting up the Tree with Polkadoodles

Hello everyone - Happy Thursday and a very happy December!..

It's the first day of December and we are putting up our Christmas decorations today - yeah I love this time of year.

My twisted easel card for today is using a digital stamp very appropriately called Putting Up the Tree from the Gingerbread Holly collection by Polkadoodles.

I love putting up the decorations in the house as it makes it feel warm and cozy  and it looks like Ginger is having fun with his Christmas tree too - I hope he manages to untangle those lights.

My card today is a simple 6" x 6" twisted easel and I've added a ring of flowers and baubles. 

The papers are from the Baked with Love collection - paper heaven 2 , the flowers and leaves are from the foliage set and the sentiment is from the sentiments set

I love how the new Gingerbread Holly stamps work perfectly with the older Baked with Love collection.

To create my circular frame I die cut to circular frames of Kraft card and then die cut a piece of acetate to match - the acetate is adhered between the two circular hoops.  If you wanted you could easily create a shaker panel for this card but I decided to add dots of white acrylic paint to the acetate, to look like snow.

To create the baubles, I imported the digital image into my graphics software and then enlarged the small baubles from the digital stamp, making them large enough to add to my hoop.

The digital stamp and baubles were coloured with my promarkers before being adhered to my card.

I added some Tonic Nuvo drops for the centres of my poinsettias.
I hope that you like my card today and you'll enjoy the next cards I share from this cute new  Gingerbread Holly collection
