Oh, Christmas Tree!

Oh Christmas Trees! Oh JOY! I love how these turned out!
First, I used the tree & presents from Punch Pals, stamped them in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla. I colored these with the smaller 'pen' end of the stampin' write markers in Real Red, Wild Wasabi and Daffodil Delight. I punched it out using a circle punch and layered it on a large scallop circle of Wasabi. I used my hole punch for the edges (I sooo want the Pendant Die Cut, but alas, it's not a necessity -yet-). I threaded the Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine through the holes, tying a bow with the long ends. Awesome!! This is popped up with Dimensionals. The card base is Crumb Cake, layered with retired DSP. The ribbon is 5/8" Espresso and 1/4" Celery grosgrain. Super simple and I love it!

I liked the wreath look so much, I had to make another! This one uses the tree from Fun & Fast, colored with the same markers. I used 1/8" Celery Taffeta to weave from front to back through the holes this time. The bow on top is 3/8" So Saffron Taffeta. Card base is Old Olive, layered with retired DSP & the same celery ribbon is layered over 3/8" Old Olive grosgrain.
I think I'll have to add the Music Notes Wheel to my next Christmas tree card, to promote the whole "Oh Christmas Tree" song idea!
Well, I'm off to make Snicker-doodles and more Gingersnaps. Hope you are all getting into the Christmas spirit! I sure am!
Thanks for stopping by! ~Natalie
