We don't celebrate Christmas in Israel.
Actually, until yesterday the weather here was so warm and sunny (even in December!) and now it's getting rainy so we're wearing more than a T-shirt…
All of you who have snow piling up your doorway - don't be jealous.
At least you have enough water in your country, and you can enjoy the lovely sight of snow, so white and elegant (unless you're stuck in traffic… lol)
I made quite a few Christmas cards for family members and friends who celebrate it.
You can see several of them in my former posts, and I promise to show a few new ones in the following posts.

This is my Christmas Card #7, with a large Christmas snowy tree and a special motif of interlacing ribbon.
Ingredients:
This card has a white CS as its basis.
The next layer is a green canvas textured CS, its edges distressed for a Shabby Chic look.
Then there's a shiny gold paper, and a piece of patterned paper (from my stash) in shades of gold and green.
There are 2 main motifs on this card - the snowy tree and the interlacing ribbon piece.

For the interlacing ribbon piece I used black canvas textured CS.
Both its edges were punched with EK Success Binding Edge Edger Punch.
Then I used a narrow green satin ribbon, interlacing it from one side to the other all the way down, and simply tying its ends.

For the snowy tree I used Michael Strong's Cloisonné Christmas Tree stamp (large).
I stamped it on black canvas textured CS, then I heat embossed it with white EP, cut it with nail scissors and glued it 3D for extra dimension.
I also added clear, green and red blings, to add some Christmas glam.
Take a closer look at the side view of the card, to see how attaching these 2 motifs with 3D foam tape creates nice shadows on the card's background.

Now hop over to your next stop, Jamie's blog at Glitter, Stamps, and Paper, Oh My
I hope you'll find it inspiring. Merry Christmas!
