It's all Jo's fault over at Daring Card Makers:
I would like to see cards this week featuring a tree! Some of the Daring Cardmakers may have groaned slightly when I mentioned Christmas trees(Kathy!) but it doesn't have to be a festive tree, green trees, apple trees, stamped trees, sticker trees, paper pieced trees - anything goes, as long as it is a tree!
I recently bought the Basic Grey Offbeat papers which put me in mind of Christmas decorations in a very retro 1970s way. Perfect, I could make a Christmas card without having to delve into anything too snow covered and festive:
Ingredients: Paper - Basic Grey Offbeat, Nestabilities labels, circles and scalloped circle dies, Sizzix Sizzlits Tree die, pom poms from Aberkan, ribbon and brads from stash.
The layout of the card was based on another card I made earlier this week which has a much more summery feel!:
Ingredients: Papers - My Minds Eye (magazine freebie!), paper-pieced ice cream made with a mixture of hand cutting and Nestabilities dies, Nellie Snellen frame die, pom poms from Aberkan, ribbon from stash, inking and pen stitching.
Thanks for looking,
