Dazzling Christmas

OK, here it is.  The second Christmas card CASE I promised yesterday.  Copied from THIS (scroll down to the second card in this post) card by the great Carrie Gaskin.  Once again I had to change up some things since I don't have the stamp set she used.  Did you notice the sparkly details on the tree?  I added that with SU's new Dazzling Details glitter glue with a super fine tip for adding bling in intricate detail.

For extra texture the River Rock strip is crimped and of course the amazing quilted Cherry Cobbler ribbon is textured itself! 

TIP:  Want to know how to make a notch in ribbon like that?  Just fold it in half and cut at an angle away from the fold.  And make sure your scissors aren't sticky like mine were- you'll get a much nicer cut!  For the notch on the end of a strip of paper just use a small square punch, turn it upside so you can see what you're doing, and punch!  Simple as that (with some practice). 

Super simple- hope you like it!
