This week’s 2RedBananas challenge is “What Can You Do With a Tree?” I first made the red and green card and thought I would improve upon it and made the white and gold card. I think I like the red and green one better, though. What do you think?
Both trees started out as a triangle cut into three pieces. For the top card, I embossed each piece with a different Christmas Cuttlebug folder, then sponged it with gold ink. For the second one, I just used some older Fiskars patterned paper. Both have Close to Cocoa cardstock for the trunk and a reflective star on top. The stars are from a pack of “confetti” I picked up from the dollar section at JoAnn’s. (I got it for the white and blue snowflakes, but the stars came in handy for this card!) The base of the red card is Very Vanilla and the red is Real Red from Stampin’ Up! The other card has a white base and has shimmery gold paper on it. Both of the matting pieces are scored with double lines using my Scor-Pal. The sentiment is from “Christmas Wishes” from 2RedBananas. It is stamped with Versafine Onyx Black on the bottom card, and embossed with gold embossing powder on the top card.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
