Lawn Fawn Slimline Star Tree Card

Hello and Welcome!!!

In today’s card and video we will be creating a bright and cheerful Christmas Card! Using stars and sentiments we will create a festive Christmas Tree on a beautiful slimline card! But take a look at some of the borders and sentiments that you already have to create this style card….maybe a border of gingerbread men or jingle bells would work great here as well!

I will show you an easy trick for lining up these sentiments and stars on your card by using the Misti Creative Corners accessories. We will also add a little bit of sparkle to our Distress Oxide Ink background with some Liquid Stardust!

This card was inspired by the beautiful color combination on the current Lawn Fawn Blog Challenge #90 – Color Inspiration which is pictured below.
