Hi there blog friends! In my quest to reconstruct my new (in box laying on the floor since April) bookcase where it should be, my little house is turned upside down. If you have ever played that sliding number puzzle where you have to get the numbers lined up consecutively in the square, moving them space by space, then you would be well acquainted with exactly how crazy it is to move a large piece of furniture in my house. . That’s the reason the picture of my card is taken with real light today, because my light tent and lights are not reachable. So yes, I managed to reconstruct the bookcase (even if it did take me forever). I’m so checking that one off of my list! I do have a Christmas card to share today made using the Joy Tree set from Our Daily Bread Designs.
I used Spellbinders Nested Lacey Pennants and Nested Pennants to cut out and frame the tree. They were not an exact fit but can be trimmed down to size. For the background I used Spellbinders Creative Book Pages for my bottom layer then added Spellbinders Grand Circles backed by Spellbinders Grand Big Scalloped Circle for an off center element. I topped the tree off with a Jennie Bowlin Doily Flower and also snatched the opportunity to use some of my dark lace.
