Finally the weekend is here. I had a vision that I wanted to use my Christmas fabric and making a Christmas card with it. This fits perfect with the sketch challenge as well as Ways To Use It challenge using pearls.
I started with Burgundy Bazzill as the base. I ironed Fusible Web onto the fabric and then again onto white cs as the layer. I folded the ends of the fabric underneath. I used my SU mat stack to pierce holes in all 4 corners and attached mini gold brads. I cut 2 pieces of 2.5" x 2.5" squares on Glitter Self Adhesive dp. I stamped the image with Versa Mark onto GP white cs, used gold embossing powder and heat gun to set. I also added mini self stick pearls onto the tree. I sponged with Baroque Burgundy around the edges. I used the SU mat stack again on the corner, added 3 mini gold brads. I also layered with Burgundy Bazzill cs. I then tied 2 strings of gold ribbon across the bottom of the tree and tied a knot.
This is what I visioned all day at work and I'm happy with the results.

This came out really pretty Connie. Love the fabric and the embossed trees. Also the pearls as ornaments.
