Oh, Christmas Trees...
So I got to work today and made him another 2 dozen. Will likely have to do more! I'm kind of gleeful, as he always thinks the card-thing is not truly crafty ("No-one will have one of your cards 50 years from now, but they would keep a hand-made quilt..."). Now he's into it!
So, with this week's Color My Heart dare in mind: Sweet Leaf and Twilight,
Anyway, I used a Sizzix die for the pine trees and ran them through an embossing folder, for more definition. They sit on top of a scrap of patterned paper from the "Cruisin'" pack (retired), on a Twilight card base. The "Peace" banner was cut using the Cricut Artiste cartridge, and mounted with foam tape to allow the letters to show better. I replaced part of the "P" with a little twilight "Sparkle."
Then I made multiples of this card:
Lil 'Inker Instant Camera: Christmas Stamp set. I also used a new product from the Twinery, Platinum Shimmer twine, to wrap the tree. Star on top is a Dazzle from Paper Wishes. I added a little gold Stickles to the snow after taking the photo--it looks finished now.
Less that a week to go!
