Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, you are so perfect to me

STOP, you are not experiencing triple vision!

You have already seen this digital stamp twice before but in case you missed it, it's The Perfect Christmas Tree digital stamp from QKR Stampede and the "Holiday Cheer" sentiment from the Christmas Words Dies from Paper Smooches.


This time I have matted the image panel.
Because my nesting oval dies have quite a large gap between sizes, I traced the inner edge of the die and fussy cut the image panel and layered it over the die cut mat.

NOW it's time to decide on which of my Perfect Christmas Tree cards are going to be perfect for half of our Christmas mailing list this year.
What do you think, 1st, 2nd or 3rd version?


You can read about the original version of my card HERE and the 2nd version HERE

You will never guess what my song is ...
Yes, you're right, it's "O Christmas Tree"
Was it my post title or the image that gave it away?

  7. Hello there Tracy! I just wanted to pop over and say welcome to The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up. I'm so pleased you've found us and I hope that you'll be able to continue to join us throughout the year. Don't forget that linking up two Christmas cards each month, earns you a free digital paper and I see you've already earned one for September! Plus if you follow the optional theme, you also have a chance at an additional prize so good luck with that. Your cards turned out great though I think I'm partial to #2 since you asked. Such a cute image and I love the burlap type fraying.

    Oh and thanks for voting on the paper choice. I love the birch tree paper myself. In fact, I think it is one of my favourites!

    Hope to see you again next month too!
