Vintage Bottle Brush Trees & Toy Soldier Christmas Card

When I was younger my family had a silver Bottle Brush Christmas Tree.

Stamped the Hero Arts Bottle Brush Tree multiple times using silver ink on the vellum. Stamped the HA sentiment. Used heat tool to dry the ink.

Used Tim Holtz sander on cardstock before die cutting, cut the TH Toy Soldier out multiple times and paper pieced the Toy Soldier.

Used a piece of Nutcracker scrapbook paper that complements the Tim Holtz Toy Soldier.
