It's 6.5 weeks to Christmas. Have you started on your holiday cards yet? I don't usually start making them so early so early but I really wanted to play with LD's DB Christmas Trees Doddlebat font. So I made a quick card with it. Ahhh...."Doodlebat"! I just love that word because it means that I don't have to convert the image in Photoshop prior to tracing in MTC. I just had to add the font to MTC and work with the image as if it came from a graphic set. Easy peasy!
Using MTC, these are the layers that I came up with for one of the trees in the font. The black shadow layer was made using the Shadow Layer tool in MTC.
I cut the sentiment (from the LD Seasons' Greetings set) out of adhesive-backed paper. This is because the letters are so fine and I thought it would be so much easier to adhere to the card if the back of the sentiment cutout was already sticky.
The tree was adhered to the card with foam tape for added dimension. I also added rhinestones to the project for some bling-bling. The card base was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and a Stampin' Up! ribbon was used to finish off the card.
