A Christmas tree!

Hi there!

My Christmas card collection is growing at a slow but sure pace :) As most of them have to travel halfway round the world... I need them to be finished in time for Mr Postman!

Here's another:

(perhaps my favorite so far?)




For my top layer, I printed a template from Pixel scrapper on craft card stock.

A simple triangle and small square were welded in my Silhouette software to create a clean lined Christmas tree.

I am working on my huge stash of ribbon... added red pearls for the baubles, and a die cut star to complete the picture.

Challenge inspiration:

Less is more  ~ TREE

abc christmas challenge ~ under the tree

Freshly made sketches



Thanks so much for popping in... I really appreciate it!
