Pedestal Card

The Santa's Slackers challenge is to create a pedestal card.  These cards are fun and easy.  I chose a tree design because that is the new theme at Jitterbuggin'.  It took a lot longer to finish this card than it should have LOL.  I designed it on the Gypsy since the tree is cut from the Christmas cartridge which I got on the Gypsy download (6 cartridges to download - how great is that?).  I originally tried some fancy corners cut  from Straight From the Nest, but they just wouldn't cut right, even when I tried different papers.  The ones I chose were just too fine so I went with the scalloped corner shadow instead.  I also fiddled around with the sentiment and then wound up using a Sixxix die in my Cuttlebug.  Well, after all my redo's, here is the final product.

It's difficult to tell (it was cloudy outside) but the paper that appears gray is actually silver glitter paper.  The white background is embossed using the Cuttlebug Snowflake folder and the pedestal background is embossed using the Swiss Dots folder.  I used Star Dust Stickles on the tree.

I had a great day at the Scrapbook Expo.  I didn't overdo on any one thing, but I did come home with quite a bit of Bling!  How could I pass up all those $1 bargains? 

Hugs and Happy Crafting,
