FTL 169

Good morning everyone! Here we are at another week. I just can't believe how fast it is all going! I know my son can't wait for Christmas break to get here, though. Everything just seems to go at record speed this time of year. We need to finish up the shopping and don't even talk to me about Christmas cards! Maybe I will get some sent out. 

Today's card was inspired by the sketch at Clean&Simple. When I first saw the sketch I didn't have any ideas. But after looking through a magazine, I saw ideas using two triangles for a Christmas tree. Well, I decided to give it a try and here is my result! I got my color cues from the Just Add Cake designer paper. And I think it turned out pretty cute! My card base is Poppy Parade and then I used the 3 1/2" circle die to die cut a circle from Blushing Bride card stock and that is glued to the card front. I stamped the words from Grateful for You in Early Espresso onto the circle. Then I cut the two smaller triangles from the Perfect Pennants die using designer paper from the Just Add Cake pack. I trimmed the ends of each triangle with the scallop edge border punch and curled them out a little. I cut a small piece of Early espresso for the trunk and a star using the stars die and So Saffron paper. The tree is popped up on the card and the final touch was some rhinestones. I hope you like it, too! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
