Less is More, Sometimes

Hello Everyone!  Today I wanted to share a card that is different than my usual style.  This is clean and simple with high impact, I think.  I also wanted to show you that you do not need a Christmas tree die to make a Christmas tree.  I first cut a triangle in the shape of a Christmas tree, from glittered cardstock.  I cut several strips of paper using the Scallop Three Edger die from green patterned paper.  I then layered the strips onto the Christmas tree, offsetting each strip so the scallops were staggered.  I cut a brown tree trunk and then adhered the tree to a red card base.  I cut a strip of white glitter cardstaock with a slight wave for a hill.  Merry Christmas was written with a white gel pen, and a white snowflake was added for the tree star.  How do you use your dies in different ways?  I hope this inspires you to look at the possibilities your dies can create.  Thanks for stopping, as always.

Hugs and smiles,
Janice
