Oh Christmas Tree....challenge 147

Today it's my turn to choose the theme this time around over at and I've come up with this. Make a card or project but it must have a Christmas Tree on it somewhere.

There couldn't be easier at this time of the year. Remember you can add up to 3 items per challenge so lets make this one a blast.

Here is my first of two cards which have Christmas trees on them.

This is a 7x7 card using a kraft cardblank. I chose to use the image off a Graphic 45 sheet of Christmas toppers I bought last year. I picked out the peach of the girls dress and then a frosty blue from the image to use as my mats. I mounted the image on dark red glitter card which linked in the ribbon and the strip of paper I embossed the Merry Christmas sentiment on (that was a freebie) I also rubbed over it with some gilding wax. The two smaller sentiments are Verve Stamps from their O Christmas Tree set.

Now this second card is one from a kit I picked up free in a magazine. The background papers were included as well as the toppers and sentiment discs. With this I just added ribbon and the strip of red with the stars punched out.

Hope you can join in this time around as it is the last of the year. Thanks for popping in.

  3. Sue, I love your mix of both vintage and modern in these two very different and beautiful tree cards! Very busy here creating cards for all our winter birthdays while working on our Christmas card list and enjoying breaks with our winter visitors. ;')
