Oh Christmas Tree.......

I decided to try out the SheetLoad of Cards site and found this layout in their September issue. With their directions I was able to cut 6 cards at once.

I swear it takes me forever to pick out what papers I want to use! I can find a card I want to do then I spend 5 hours deciding which papers would look the best and it never fails that I always end up changing the papers like 20 times!! ARRGGHH!!

I couldn't decide what to put in the middle as it seemed the examples had stamped images. I was feeling too lazy to even try and color an image so I wanted something simple. I went through a DCWV Christmas stack I had and found a sheet with these Christmas trees. I had to cut them down to make them fit the white part. I then glued them onto some brown cardstock to add dimension and also the trunk that I had cut off. I inked the edges with Olive cat eye chalk ink. The red inking is with Ruby cat eye chalk ink, I think!!

I used the snowflake cuttlebug folder and stickled it. I think I use more Diamond stickles than any other color! The green mat is from the DCWV neutral stack. I don't remember what kinda paper the big mat is. It is something I got at the LSS that was on a clearance rack.

I used the threading water punch for the band. For the sentiment I used a Studio G stamp from series 12. And the green mat is from Mini Monograms and has the circle with the small circle and a hole in the middle. Heck I dunno what it is called but it worked for what I needed!!
