This month's challenge at Christmas Craft Creations is Christmas Trees, so come and join us with your seasonal makes if it's got a Christmas tree on it.
Using a tree shaped die I cut a window in my card blank, I had used a square card and it looked a bit 'roomy' at the top, so I chopped it down to be tree shaped too.
The window made the front a little flimsy so I added acetate to strengthen it. I was going to put the greeting tree inside but it didn't look very good, so I decided to stick it to the acetate on the outside. This meant I needed a contrast colour behind it to make it stand out, so for the cream card I cut a green tree and the white card a patterned blue paper.
The outside edges of the card were quite bare so I used a 2in1 glue pen and added foil all the way around. Making two at the same time, but in different colours, was a good way to build up my card stash so when we get to November I can start making decorations instead of cards.
I would like to enter these cards in the following challenges:
