Leaves and Trees

PE: Winner at Must Christmas Challenge!!

Hello! Another set of cards for today –

Happy For YouMy second card stemmed from the card in my previous post – I thought of using the same set of leaves, but, die-cutting them from the pattern paper this time (I used the same pattern paper from K & Company). The leaves are die cut from Ellen Hutson Bold Blooms and I used Mama Elephant Happy die and a (partial) sentiment from Paper Smooches Simply Said stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink for the sentiment. I used no other embellishments – and oh, boy was it hard for me to hold back!! πŸ˜€

Submitting this to Sovushka Slavia’s Autumn CAS Marathon: Phase I – Literature – Autumn Activity.

Merry ChristmasFor some reason, I never participated in this fantastic challenge after I participated in the very first one. I have no idea why! But I just had to this time – inspiration also stuck from Sarah’s card here. And also from the fact that the stamp that I’ve used here – Winnie & Walter Its A Wonderful Pennant – has never been used for a Christmas theme card by me – not once! πŸ˜€ Its kinda sad, really!

Now coming back to the card – After stamping the trees in Memento Cottage Ivy, Memento Bamboo Leaves, Hero Arts Field Greens, I drew the stumps using Versamark pen and gold heat embossed the stumps and the star on the center tree, along with the sentiment from Penny Black Sentimentals. I then mounted this on the card base, on which I had adhered some gold paper from Brustro and added some gold rhinestones on the tree tops. Very simple card. πŸ™‚

  1. Great takes on all three challenges! Die cuts from the patterned paper look gorgeous! BTW, I found Christmas Muse card difficult for caseing, but your card is so elegant!

    • Thank you so much Ksenjia! I must say, I found the challenge difficult till now – hence no submissions!! πŸ˜€ And like I said, I found a lot of inspiration this time, and that’s how I was able to make something! πŸ™‚

  5. I love the effect you got from die cutting your patterned papers on your first card, so pretty. And your modern trees in shades of green with the gold are fab.
    Thanks for sharing with us.
