Ippity Mini Card

This week's {ippity} challenge was to make a mini card.
Using a 4 by 4 card base, here is the card I created.

I was originally going to use red and white Christmas paper for this card, but then I glanced at my Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934  paper pad sitting on my desk and I said to myself," forget the Christmas paper, this is better".  So that's what I did.  I really like this paper and it works  well for a Christmas card.  To begin the card I stamped the background for the sentiment in a pale yellow using the Bit of Burlap stamp. The sentiment that  was stamped with Palette ink in black noir came from the Season of Joy stamp set and the tree came from the Kissmas and Mistletoe stamp set.  I used the square scalloped nestabilities die for the frame and a circle nestability to cut out the middle of the frame.  I used pop dots to lift the frame off the paper.  The tree was stamped and embossed with clear embossing powder.  A little rhinestone and ribbon finished off the tree.

Have a great day,
