Trim the Tree!

The inspiration for these cards was the card shown on page 12 of the Holiday Gift Guide. They feature the Sparkle and Shine paper packet and the Trim the Tree stamp set.  I changed them up a little bit, using silver shimmer tape instead of the hand stitching and red bling I found in my stash.  The card on the left uses the Sparkle Holiday Shapes for the bling on the trees, while the one on the right uses more economical Glitter Gel.  It gives the same look and will be easier to mail. The "Believe" was cut on the Cricut using the Artbooking cartridge.
