Crafty Gals December Challenge

The Crafty Gals Blog Group's December Challenge is the THE POWER OF THREE! We were required to make a holiday card keeping the number 3 in mind. Everything on the card had to be in 3's. 3 layers (card base does NOT count as a layer), 3 stamped images (or an image with 3 things on it), 3 embellishments (3 buttons, 3 ribbons etc. or 1 ribbon, 1 pearl, and 1 brad etc).

I used my favorite Stampin Up! set, Lovely as a Tree, again. I stamped it in Chocolate Chip ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and then cut the image into 3 pieces. I then mounted the images on to pieces to Chocolate Chip cardstock and then mounted those pieces to an embossed piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock making up my three layers excluding the Crumb Cake based that I used. I finished the card by adding three brads in the bottom corner.
