Woe is Tree

This morning, the Lady Commander of Copics and I set out travelling north to the perpetually snow covered land of Mount Woe. We decided to go questing there to not only escape the pressing summer heat, but also to collect some of the magical evergreen branches from the unique trees that grow on the mountain. As we neared Mount Woe though, we immediately regretted our decision to come, as the land was enwrapped in a massive blinding blizzard.

I started this card by cutting the Christmas Tree out using the Winter Frolic cartridge. I embossed the pieces with my Cuttlebug before gluing them together. The background I embossed with a snowflake folder and adhered to a kraft base. I cut the tag out using the Winter Frolic cartridge and stamped the sentiment with the My Pink Stamper “Christmas Wishes” set. This earned me +291 punny exp points. Some red thread and a button finished off the front of this card.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment and image using the Echo Park “Holly Jolly Christmas” set.

This tree will rock around the following challenges:
Desert Island Crafters Challenge #58 (used #4 - put a tag on it, #5 - put a tree on it and #10 - use a star)
ETA: Moxie Fab World Holiday Card Challenge

After having travelled the great distance to reach the mountain, it seemed a shame to leave without at least obtaining a few of the magical branches, so we donned our heavy winter gear we had brought with us, drank some stamina potions, and set out.
