Over at Moxie Fab World they have a challenge called 'Tree-mendous Tree's'. They are wanting projects that contain a tree somewhere and as I've had Xmas tree's pouring out of my brain of late, I've got another entry to add.
I was also inspired by the card for the latest Muse Challenge # 93, which was made by the always incredible Therese Calvird:
I've already entered the Muse Challenge once but had this other card stuck in my mind that desperately wanted to be made.
When I was on Pinterest the other day, I noticed a lot of Xmas tree's that were made up of graduating strips of paper or die-cuts and I just loved them. I wanted to add a little sparkle to my tree, so my glitter paper pad came out to play!
After die-cutting the tree, I cut thin strips of the pale green glitter paper and attached them to the back of the die cut. I also added a thicker strip of gold/yellow glitter paper behind the star. I cut out a piece of white card stock slightly smaller than the card front and adhered it over the the strips. A quick sentiment stamp in black ink and all done. Simple and clean...just the way I like it!
The glitter paper is from DCWV. The Xmas Tree die is from Couture Creations and the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp 'Christmas 3x4'.
Very dreary day today for the kids to be home (Teachers Only Day...lucky them!) so not sure what we will do. I'm going to take the kids, after lunch, to pick out their chocolate advent calendars (they are cardboard with a window for each day of December that contain a chocolate shape).
I've taken a photo of them with their calendars every year since they could hold on to them and it always amazes me how much they grow between photos. Even though they are getting bigger and older, I still tell them they will always be my babies!
