Tree spinner card using Perfect Pines Framelits

I saw this super cute card on Dawn Griffith's website and I just had to CASE it!  I changed a few things with my card but the design is the same.  I thought these would be harder to make but once I made the first one to get a feel for how it would look, I breezed through the others.


My husband wanted a handful of extra special holiday cards to send to some of his customers and of course he did not give me much time to make them.  CASEing cards can be a quick and easy way to come up with a design when you are short on time.  


The tree was cut out twice using the largest die from the Perfect Pines Framelits and then glued together with fast fuse to the string.  Pearl embellishments make the perfect ornaments on trees.  The gold foil sheets are amazing and jazz up any project.



The DSP used is from the holiday catalog called Season of Cheer.  I layered that on some mossy meadow cardstock.  Because the tree is the center focus on the front of the card, it makes it difficult to put your greeting inside.  I did not photograph it but there is a greeting stamped on the inside that is hidden under the tree.  I used the back of the card for the main greeting and where we will sign our names.



I really just loved how these turned out!  I wish I would have seen this card earlier and I just might have gotten Christmas cards made to send to family and friends.  I have been pretty slack this holiday season and will not get cards out. We also opted out of putting up a tree and now that the weather has gotten cooler, it feels more like Christmas and I'm wishing we had put one up.

Happy Friday!
