Cardz TV Christmas in July Challenge #4

Well this is the last of Mary's challenges at cardztv.blogspot.com and I am going to miss doing them! This challenge was to use a christmas tree on your card.

I chose to do an easel card because I wanted to put lots of dimension on my card. I used single and double layers of pop dots to put the gifts on a strip of cardstock, then popped that strip up on pop dots in front of the tree, which is also popped up. (Whew! Thatsalotta pops!)
Here are the supplies I used:
Christmas tree was cut from Create A Critter cartridge - I cut 3 of these and then cut the levels with scallop scissors and inked and layered the pieces to give my tree lots of dimension.
All paper is from DCWV - cardstock, Christmas Stack, and the tree was cut from an 8x8 sheet called green stained.
The sentiment is from Lizzie Anne designs Little Bits cling stamp set
Stickles to add lights to the tree, a foam sparkle star and ribbon from my stash, sakura glitter pens and dew drops to embellish.
Nestabilities labels #4 to cut the shapes for the sentiment.
I hope you enjoy, thanks again Mary for another fun challenge!

Wow! Just absolutely love this idea. What an imagination and how talented you are. I would have never thought of layering the presents on a strip of cardstock before putting them on the tree. I love easel cards. Dimension and textures make cards just "Pop" for me. So, this is a double pop (LOL). Great job Beejay. I will also miss Mary's challenges, but I see she is moving the Cricut Challenge to her site - so that will be awesome.
