Pear Pizzazz Trees

This card is for SCS Color Challenge #351 (Pear Pizzazzz, White & Craft) and my final submission for Less Is More #43 (A bit of bling). This little card has left behind heaps of destruction. It has been torn apart at least half a dozen times since Tuesday leaving fallen scraps of paper, bling and embossed trees littering the floor around my table. Unfortunately I dropped my Cuttlebug machine and it landed on the handle and the whole thing came apart. I managed to snap the casing back on, but nope, it's definitely broken. :( I still have the Big Shot but must admit that I prefer my smaller CB. Oh well, the plus side is that now I have a bit of space for something else. Silver lining and all .... gotta love 'em.

About the card:
The card stock is SU!s retired Kraft and 2011 In-Color Pear Pizzazz. Sentiment is SU!s Teeny Tiny Wishes stamped with Early Expresso. The trees are a die and embossing folder set from Cuttlebug that is made up of three trees and a Santa shaped like a tree. The lovely bling is by Zva and the puffy snow is Liquid Applique.

It think that covers it. Thank you for stopping by and I hope every one has a great weekend.



  1. Hi Carole, This is a brilliant card, I love those little trees, what a shame about your poor cuttlebug and thank heavens you have another die cutting machine, don't know how would cope without my bug! Kind wishes from you about my leaky waterworks, (that sounds not quite right but you get my drift LOL) We are dry ATM and as long as we don't use the main bath will remain so LOL Hugs Gay xxx
