Trimming the Tree
I used the cute MME background paper just as it was, and arranged my design within it. I don't often use a whole sheet of paper without cutting into it but this was too adorable to cut and perfect just as it was. I did distress the edges and back the paper onto Kraft cardstock. I dry brushed green paint around the edges of the cardstock to add a splash of colour and to frame the MME background paper. The MME title card was perfect for this page and fitted in with the theme. All that was left to do then was to add some cute embellishments. I die-cut two chipboard hearts and covered one with patterned paper and the other with gold rub -on paste. I adhered them together and topped them with a cute MME charm. The little lanterns are from Prima. I lightly rubbed gold paste over them to highlight the markings and to dull down their bright white colour.
