Weekly Christmas Card

I've gotten hooked on the Bah!Humbug! Christmas card challenges...helps get the mojo going for my weekly card for my Christmas stash.  This week they want us to use an aperture.  I used the Stardust and Snowflakes set from Rubbernecker to stamp the tree, using Distress Inks for the first two layers, then gold EP for the star layer.  I love, love, love how it turned out.  Think this is going to be my go to set for a mass card production (later in the year).  I put all the layers together following the sketch at Create4Fun, then cut the rectangle aperture and mounted the image behind it.  I went around the aperture opening with a gold Decopaint marker, and around the sentiment as well.  The felt poinsettias are from my stash. 

Okay, paper playing is over.  Back to playing with fabric! :)
