Tree in a sack

This card was made for the ways to use it challenge over on SCS. The challenge was all about dimension or basically to pop it up! Here's what I created....

This cute stamp is from Plum Purdy, stamped in Memento ink and colored with Copic's. I used a yellow stardust pen to color the star.

A long rectangle nestie was used to cut out the image and then I used two strips of foam tape on top of each other to pop it up. Kraft and black card stock used along with the designer paper from Making Memories.

I decided to tie a piece of string to the top to go along with the tie on the sack. I used a single strand of DMC floss and I have to tell you it was harder than heck to get that bow tied! I ended up using some glue stick to get it placed where I wanted it.

It turned out to be a CAS card that has some character to it! I hope that you have a Happy Holiday Season with family and friends!
