Curvy Christmas

Font: One Starry Night
Dies: Pennants (Spellbinders); Stars (MFT)
Other: 0.25" hole punch; gold tinsel embossing powder; red glitter paper
It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas...  Have just been to see my youngest in the carol service at the cathedral, & wrapped a few gifts, BUT I refuse to put up any decorations for at least another fortnight.  Am I a Scrooge?  I don't think so.  I want to look forward to Christmas & enjoy it, not be sick of it before it even arrives!  OK, rant over.
This card was inspired largely by the fabby font that someone pinned on Pinterest.  I really like the shape of the letters, so decided to make more of a feature of it by curving it up the side of the card (using Silhouette Studio), then cut the edge to match.  A strip of spotty paper inside the card helps highlight the edge.  The tree is simple strips of green stuck on a die cut triangle.  I am perfectly capable of cutting a triangle, but now I own dies for things, I feel duty bound to use them,  even when it takes twice as long to haul out / clear up all the kit...  A smidge of glue pen & embossing powder along the edge gives a bit of extra glam.  This one definitely lends itself to batch production; maybe next year...
PS Thanks Darnell for the heads up about the FaceBook showCASe on ATCAS - I didn't even know it was there!
