Trim The Tree - Daring Cardmakers DT

Happy Friday!

Friday already! The weeks seem to fly by at the moment and before you know it, it'll be December.  My planner is mad during December, most of it taken up with school activities...........

So, the Daring Cardmakers have asked for trees this week - could be a single one or an entire forest.  It doesn't have to be a Christmas tree either........You'll see a lot of wonderful inspiration on the Daring Cardmakers blog HERE and I hope you'll join in!

I just happened to pick up the latest Making Cards Magazine recently and it had the most appropriate printed toppers and papers for this challenge.  It must have been fate!  I used both the tree papers, the red as the backing and from the white I die cut a smaller tree and framed it as well.


The main topper really didn't need more than a frame and I used my new stitched hexagon dies.


I added glitter stars from the upcoming Bubbly Funk December Through The Letterbox (shhhhh, it's a sneak peek so don't tell anyone!) for a bit of bling.  My other embellishments are washi tape and gems.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I will see you again very soon!
