Dazzling Christmas Tree Card - Dreaming Tree SVG

“Thank you, dear Creator, for life. Thank you for dreams. Thank you for ideas and thoughts and feelings. Most of all, thank you for choosing me to grow - just for today - and to know the wonder of Your world and its many possibilities.”

Hey all,

It's that wonderful time of  year when crafters look forward to creating handmade cards to send to their family and friends who live far and wide. Needless to say, they need to be fairly uncomplicated and easy to send through the mail.  By easy I mean not more than 1-inch thick 😁.  Seriously, I know I have to pay more postage to send them but it's worth it to create something special.  Some of my recipients tell me they have  saved them year after year and one of them has even created a banner,  so I feel inspired to make them worthy of display.

This year's card is very clean and simple, by my standards. The tree is created from a Dreaming Tree SVG and I spiffed it up with a star and gift  created in Cricut Design Space.  Shine and sparkle is what I was going for, so I sprinkled gems everywhere.  The card measures 5 1/2 square, which means extra postage, but no worries.  The gems have already put me into the "hand cancel" category.

This is just the beginning of my Christmas crafting blitz.  So much more to enjoy.  After all,  it's the most wonderful ( and frantic) time of the year for us crafty sorts.

Thanks for visiting.
Go forth and enjoy the wonder of the world in all its Christmas splendor.
