Pennant Parade Christmas Tree!

Good morning all!

Sorry I ahven't posed or a while. I was pretty busy last wek wit work and then on saturday I had my first ever card class so I was busy prepping for that too. I think I have a few pictures I took on the day (but I need to check my camera first) and I will share them with you soon!!

Today I have a christmas card to show you that I have made with one of the new SU sets called Pennant Parade. I absolutley LOVE this set, it is soooooo useful and versatile. Pennant Parade is not just for christmas, it's for life!! Ha!

A 3D angle of the card.....

and the lovely decrated inside...


CS: SU Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Very Vanilla

Papers: SU Holly Bouquet Speciality, Old Olive Patterns DSP

Stamps: SU Pennant Parade, Petite Pairs

Tools: Top Note Bigz Die, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Scallop Trim Border and Petite Pennants builder punches, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Crumb Cake ink pads

Misc: Sponge daubers, Stampin Markers, Adhesive Gemstones

I created the background pattern by stamping a small patterned stamp from Pennant Parade on the CS using the co-ordinating ink pad. I love this candy cane effect paper too. The red stipes are so glitzy and sparkly and is from the fab new Holly Bouquet Speciality paper pack!!

Well thanks for stopping by today. I hope you've enjoyed seeing my latest christmas creation! Got to dash now and get ready for work!

Hugs, Victoria ~x~

I was wondering where you'd got to Vicky - thought you might've popped over to the Bahamas for the weekend! Hope you enjoyed your card class - I bet everyone else certainly did. Love the pennant parade card with the extra bling! Vx
