This card turned out way better than I had in my head!
It's really hard to see, but the red background is embossed cs. The tree frame is the negative from a Sizzix die, backed with "designer paper" that was a gift bag in it's first life. I'm so glad I kept it all those years ago!
I hand cut the banners from the patterned paper and used the Perfect Layers tool to make the mats for them. I stitched loops in the ribbon and the glued them down with gue dots.
The tiny little crystal ornament was filched from a Christmas decoration I have, threaded with gold cord and placed between the pleats with glue dots. The focal piece is mounted with dimensionals.
