MCT 12 Days of Christmas - Day 9


Welcome to the My Creative Time "12 Days of Christmas"!  You are in for a lot of fun for these twelve days - daily projects by Emma and the design team, along with some fabulous prizes celebrating Emma's one year anniversary!  If you arrived here from Jeanne,  then you are headed in the right direction.  If not, please start at Emma's blog here.

Today's card is a 6" square card.  The scarlet layer is a 5 3/4" square, and the black patterned paper is 5 1/2" square.  Across the middle, I adhered a 5 1/2" x 2 3/4" piece of scarlet cardstock with a 5 1/2" x 2 1/2" piece of music patterned paper on top of that.


These adorable trees are from the new Cricut Circle exclusive cartridge, Paper Trimmings.  Before cutting them out at 4 3/4" and 4 1/2" (I flipped one), I used my Gypsy to hide a cut out at the top of each tree.  This left room for some Peachy Keen faces.  I also used Liquid Pearls to add a little decoration.


My sentiment is from Emma's Mixed Holiday Sentiments stamp set and is stamped on a banner cut from her Build a Banner Kit.  I thought it was the perfect match for my dancing trees!

Recipe:

The Paper Company Kraft Cardstock
Papertrey Ink Scarlet Jewel & Ripe Avocado Cardstock
My Mind's Eye "Lost & Found Christmas" Patterned Paper
My Creative Time "Build a Banner Kit"
My Creative Time "Mixed Holiday Sentiments" Stamp Set
Peachy Keen PK-570 "Basic Paper Doll Face Assortment" Stamp Set
Papertrey Ink True Black Ink
Copic Marker
Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen
