Here’s how to play the game:

  • Find the products used to create this tree in the Scrap Girls Boutique.

  • Send your answers to games@scrapgirls.com by 11:59 p.m. (ET), Thursday, December 31.

  • Please include the product name and its web address link for each item you find. Any product that includes the specific item will count as a correct answer.

  • Use the subject line “Christmas Tree of Doom” for your email entry; include your name and your Scrap Girls Forum user name, if available.

The Christmas tree card above is made using 14 different papers. The paper designers include:

  • Amanda Fraijo-Tobin

  • Angie Briggs

  • Brandy Murry

  • Elisha Barnett

  • Ginny Whitcomb

  • Jennifer Ziegler

  • Julie White

  • Kim Meeder

  • Laurel Lakey

  • Marlene Peacock

The Christmas tree card has 34  embellishments. Those designers include:

  • Amanda Fraijo-Tobin

  • Ang Campbell

  • Angela Blanchard

  • Angie Briggs

  • Armi Custodio

  • Brandy Hackman

  • Brandy Murry

  • Cheri Thieleke

Don't panic! You don't have to find them all to play the game. (Whew!) But anyone who DOES get them all correct will automatically win a $10 Gift Certificate! No problem, you've got it. This means more than one person can win a $10 gift certificate - because anyone this motivated deserves a prize! The winners of these gift certificates can get in on the rest of the game, too!

For all players:

  • If you get 25 or more correct answers, you will be entered into a drawing for a $25 Gift Certificate!

  • If you get 10-24 correct answers, you will be entered into a drawing for a $10 Gift Certificate!

  • If you get 5-9 correct answers, you will be entered into a drawing for a $5 Gift Certificate!

Does that sound possible? Hope so!

HINT: The papers for the background and star are both included; the drop shadows are not. Everything is very straight-forward: You’ll be looking for papers and embellishments only (except for that Lettering Delights product which is obviously a font). There are no ScrapSimple products, brushes, or tools.

If you aren't up to playing the game, enjoy the pretty Christmas card and see if you can recreate it using your favorite papers and embellishments! Have fun!
