Three trees




Good morning! What a cold, snowy, foggy day it is here! YUCK!!!!! AND I had good intentions to get lots of things done today - guess I will have to tackle my "inside job list" instead!!!! 

Here are 2 cards I made using the Unity stamp set called Christmas Eve Chowder.  I bought this set last Christmas & totally forgot I had it until I saw someone's card using the adorable penguins! You know you have too much stuff when..... LOL!!!!!! 

I wanted to create clean & simple cards that would be easy to replicate.  Needless to say, cutting the trees six times was not so easy! Well...just time consuming!  The trees are stamped onto designer paper TWICE, then cut out & popped up.  I used some pink bakers twine for the top one and some gold cord that was from an old jewelery pouch I found in my drawer when I was decluttering!  The sentiment is from the Unity stamp set too.  I added a little drop of stickles to the star and that's it! Clean & Simple!!!

I am entering these cards into the following challenges:

Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge - Clean & Simple
Clearly i Stamp - Clean & Simple
Crafty Catz - Recycle or Upcycle (gold cord)
Fussy & Fancy - I love Christmas
Jingle Belles - Anything Goes
Pause, Dream, Enjoy - Forgotten stash (stamp set)

Thanks for popping by! I hope you are staying warm wherever you are (or cool if you are on the other side of the globe!!!)
Hugs,
Chris
