Bah! Humbug! Challenge 25 - Less Is More

The 'Less Is More' theme at Bah! Humbug! was a piece of perfect timing as I had left it to the last minute and could only manage a simple card this week.
Out came the Cuttlebug and a few seconds later I had embossed this wonderful silver holographic mirri card with a line of trees, ready to trim and mat onto blue card.  A long strip of the same holographic card was embossed with swiss dots, wrapped with blue ribbon and placed onto a DL card blank before adding a siver peel off greeting and the embossed trees.  
That's it!  Nothing else to it.  Job Done!
Don't you just love how this card changes colour with the light?  Reminds me of the Northern Lights.
Debs from Pink Dandelion's Craft Space is joining us as Guest Designer for July so you must drop by and see her debut card, as well as Ann and Irene's DT samples.  Also, as it is the first challenge of the month, there is our usual Prize Draw this week, so be sure to get your entries in and give yourself a chance of being selected as our random winner.  Looking forward to seeing you there.
I'm slipping this card in at the last minute for Die Cut Dreams Challenge 24 - Arctic Winter before the deadline of noon and also submitting it to ABC Christmas Challenges - 'N' is for Noel as they are looking for any card with a Christmas theme.

LOvely cards Max but the C. trees are wonderful. I must keep an eye open to see of any of the craft sites are doing that as a cuttlebug folder. I think you said yours was in a set didn't you but perhaps the trees will come out as a single.

Hope you are feeling better.
love and gentle hugs

Stunning Max - love the way you have used the folder. You star and after the slight accident on the craft desk too!! Sheesh miracle you could do anything at all after that.
