Hi everyone,
I'm here today to share the second card I made for Karen Burniston's September Challenge, Celebrate.  She has also challenged us to use the Frame Edges, which go perfectly with the Accordion Dies, but I didn't make an Accordion Card this time.  I've used two different edges on one square card.
Hope you enjoy!

  I used the Oval Flourish Frame Edges, cutting the short side 4 times, like a picture frame on the card front. For the words I used the Christmas Card Pop Up cutting away the card to leave only the shadow and doing a small amount of fussy cutting.
On the inside I used the Christmas Tree Pop Stand along with the Circle Frame Edge from the Ring Accordion around the skirt of the tree.  I already had the inside of my tree assembled when I decided to add some texture - laying it out flat - I embossed all three layers at once and it worked perfectly.
The Christmas Tree Pop Stand is one of my favorites, it's fun and easy to assemble.
After I finished my card I thought it needed something else - so I cut some little gifts & bows
from the Evergreen Pivot Card Die Set. 
Really - how could you have a Christmas tree without gifts?

Christmas Tree Pop Stand Die #1037
Frame Edges: Oval Flourish #777, Ring Accordion #904
