I am thrilled with this card! (Or maybe I am just tired of being hot and cranky and I am dreaming of cold winter days!) I had recently purchased the Alpha-Blocks die from Papertrey with the intent of using it for a window. I made the wall by rubbing white paint (an Adirondack paint dabber) on Papertrey's Kraft CS. When it was dry, I used their Woodgrain Impression Plate and then lightly sanded.
I wanted a pretty bow under the window and I remembered that this week's Make It Monday technique was to use Copic markers to color your own ribbon. I found some soft gold ribbon (to match the star on the tree) and added red and green lines.
At this point, I was definitely making a Papertrey card - so I HAD to use a Papertrey Christmas tree. I was shocked to discover that this is the only Christmas tree that I have by them. (I am going to have to remedy that situation as they have some lovely trees.) This is a gorgeous tree but perhaps a little small for my window. I colored it with Copics and added some Candy Cane Stickles.
